Plunge into the fascinating history of Al-Andalus by visiting the impressive Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba, followed by a guided tour of the city’s Jewish Quarter (Judería in Spanish).
Meet your guide at the Door of Forgiveness, near the Mosque’s bell tower and embark on a tour of the world-famous Mosque-Cathedral of Cordoba.
Cross the Patio de los Naranjos (former Caliphate courtyard) and walk straight into the stunning landmark. Wander through the halls packed with columns as you learn about Abd al-Rahman I. Responsible for founding the Muslim dynasty of Iberia and commissioning the construction of the religious site in the eighth century.
Next, admire the artwork and architecture of the mosque’s dome and mihrab, the most sacred part of the mosque. Discover the splendor of the Muslim dynasty during the reign of Abd al-Rahman III and how it was transformed into a Roman Catholic Cathedral when the city was conquered by King Ferdinand III of Castile.
After visiting the Mosque-Cathedral, set off on a walking tour of Cordoba’s Jewish Quarter (Judería in Spanish). The city, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, houses a charming Jewish Quarter with whitewashed houses. One of the most famous streets of the neighborhood is the Callejón de las Flores, where the numerous plants and scented flowers give life to this cobblestone street.
During your walking tour of the Judería, you will visit the Synagogue of Cordoba, one of the three Medieval Jewish temples that still stand in Spain. Finish the tour at the same starting point, or if you prefer you can continue to discover the Jewish Quarter at your own leisure.
- The entrance to the synagogue is free if you from the European Union. Otherwise, the ticket costs €0.30
- The synagogue is closed on Mondays. If you book the tour on a Monday, you will visit the outside of the temple.
- IMPORTANT: Unfortunately the synagogue is currently closed due to ongoing restoration works.
