  • Very nice place, a good surprise ! The house itself is beautiful and more than deserve a glimpse. The museum is about 10-12 rooms, with very good explanations provided both on panels (all at least in 2 langages, except for the inquisition part which is Spanish only) and in the document provided at the entrance. The topics covered are well chosen and give each time the appetite to know more, proof they are well pitched. Also, you can go with a baby trolley, there is an hidden elevator at the back.
  • A nice small museum that can be covered within 30 minutes of your time. It is a stone's throw from the historic Synagogue and the Maimonides statue. Good history information to be had at the museum. See my pictures for some interesting information on some of the women (Muslim & Jewish) of Cordoba at it's zenith. It's only €5
