Discover Jewish Cordoba with Rabbi Haim Casas
The Open Synagogue offers all visitors to Cordoba the possibility of discovering its Jewish quarter with Rabbi Haim Casas, rabbi, official tourist guide and researcher at the University of Córdoba.
Cordoba, founded by Rome, became the most populous city in the West in the 10th century. Crucible of cultures, and witness to the greatest cultural splendor of Judaism and medieval Islam.
The labyrinth of its streets contains the history of the coexistence of Jews, Christians and Muslims. Although that coexistence was never easy, nevertheless, it offered a powerful example of how cultural diversity can enrich a society. A city unique for its beauty, that is worth discovering in depth.
The Jewish quarter of Córdoba 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.
