“Wonderful Flamenco Performance!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014 via mobile

Stumbled upon this gem. Bought tickets to their flamenco performance - playing every night in July- and it was soo very beautiful. The music, the singer, the dancers... Everything was wonderful. They welcomed us with our 7 and 4 year old- who loved it also. GO!

“A Gem for those interested in Sephardic History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

We stumbled onto this museum, which was originally a private home. We had one of the staff provide us with an English speaking tour. She was courteous, eloquent and knowledgeable. We learning a lot about the Jewish history in Spain, including many antique artifacts that provide insight into how Jews dealt with the Inquisition. If you are interested in Sephardic history, this museum is a MUST visit.

“Trying to make sense of Jewish life in Granada”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This is a museum operated by a private collector. Of note is a room filled with relics of the Inquisition. Most of the museum is Sephardi, but every once in a while there is a bit of a surprise. We wondered why in the women's area, there was a small display of Koranic objects. The guide explained it had nothing to do with Judaism, but rather reflected how women of that era may have taught their children.

The guide was fairly knowledgeable. There is another Jewish museum in Granada-- La Casa de la Juderia. This museum compares much more favorably.

“A remarkable find in Granada”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

We stumbled upon this museum of the Sephardic Jewish history of Granada and we were very pleased we did.
Our lovely young guide, Julia, had great knowledge of the troubled relationship of the Granada Jews during the Inquisition, when to avoid death they were forced to deny their religion and convert to Catholicism.
She also understood the exhibits and the part they play in Jewish life.
This although Julia had only started at work here earlier this year and considered there was a possibility that her ancestors were among those who had denied their Jewish religion.
There are now about 30 jews only still living in Granada.
The museum has interesting exhibits that make it well worth a visit for a small charge,and mirrors the similar musuem in Cordoba.

“Interesting intro to Jews of Cordoba”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

This museum will introduce you to the Jews of Cordoba. It is the effort of someone who appears to be a private collector. If this is a topic that appeals to you it is certainly worth a visit. It is not the Jewish Museum in NY but it is interesting.
