    Maimonides statue
    You can visit the synagogue (it's free) and see its Arabian style interior. It used to be a church later so there is a trace of a cross on the wall.  There is a statue of the famous Moshe Maimonides outside; he was born in Cordoba and lived there up to age 13 (bar-mitzvah). They say you would get smarter after touching his shoe, it won't hurt to try...

    Wonderful slow visit
    My wife and I love to wander around old cities without a specific agenda and without a set time frame. This certainly fits this simple criteria. The pathways are often quite narrow and you pass businesses that you would be hard pressed to find again without GPS. We just took our time and greatly appreciated everything we saw and the spirit of the area. Definitely worthwhile to take your time and slow down the hectic cadence of travel. Enjoy.

    Lovely strolling around
    White washed houses, narrow streets and great museums are some of the attractions to be savoured in this historic and atmospheric district. First that came into view was the impressive turreted wall, very impressive. Stopping off for breakfast in one of the many cafes, it was then on to enjoy further sights. Casa Andalusí, Al-Iksir Alchemy Museum and Sinagoga de Córdoba are evocative and well worth the time spent.

    Take a tour if you want the history
    We had a combination tour of the town and Mezquita and felt it was especially worthwhile for the cathedral alone, but also for walking the town. We would have missed a lot of the subtle history markers throughout the town while enjoying the pretty white washed walls and elaborate doors. Not as cute as Barrio Santa Cruz in Seville and not as many sights as Toledo, but still worthwhile to see. Don't forget to go to the Roman bridge before leaving town (our tour group did not even include a stop for the bridge, but thankfully we were able to use the 15 minutes of free time after Mezquita to visit).

    Wander the maze-like streets
    Fascinating streets, lanes and alleyways in this ancient section of Cordoba. Many small and interesting shops, as well as interesting architecture. The Sinagoga de Cordoba is located in a small courtyard in this area.

The old Jewish quarter is a photographers dream. The small maze of alleyways are filled with all sorts of shops and restaurants and colourful houses covered in flowers etc. It is a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours, but beware of local ladies offering strips of lucky Heather, if you accept it they demand money and can get quite aggressive.

The old Jewish Quarter of Cordoba is a wonderful maze of narrow alleyways, small streets, and walkways, dotted with inviting cafes, shops, and restaurants. The colorful white buildings, with blue and yellow trim, are particularly attractive.

Such a beautiful part of Cordoba with so many little streets, patios and squares. The history is fascinating and the views are special. Take your time to explore at your leisure. It is worth it.

Lots of little alleyways with shops and restaurants. Very enjoyable to meander, and we found great leather goods, albeit a tad expensive.

A typical quarter found in any Mediterranean city with its narrow streets , high walls and cute blackbird with blue/white painted houses you find in Tunis, Spain. France , Italy , Greece etc. like those places , very tourist oriented with food, craft and souvenirs . A decent place to walk pass after/before visiting the main site .

There is nothing really special about this Jewish quarter. Small streets, good atmosphere but the quality of the shops let it down. Still worth having a quick look if it is not too hot.
