Cordoba plays a pivotal role in Jewish history. At the tenth century, this city located in the heart of Andalusia, became a home for Jewish learning, scholarship and culture, which gradually eclipsed the Babylonian academies of Sura and Pumbeditha. Its preeminence was undoubtedly the result of the grand achievements of one man, Hasdai Ibn Shaprut (915-970). Ibn Shaprut, a doctor, diplomat and scholar, served the courts of Caliph Abd al-Rahman III and his successor Hakam II. His meteoric rise to power and influence brought acclaim to the Jewish community.

The Jewish quarter of Córdoba, knows as la Judería, is one of the best preserved medieval Jewish quarters in all of Europe. Home of great thinkers and unsurpassed beauty, its streets and houses keep secrets that fascinate both locals and visitors. In it we can visit the only medieval synagogue preserved until today in Andalusia. Discover with us the fascinating history of this neighborhood, declared a world heritage by the UNESCO, as well as the life and work of its most famous inhabitants such as the great thinker Maimonides.

This tour is part of the Jewish Andalusian Heritage Route, a cultural project recognized by the European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage, AEPJ, and the Council of Europe.
