La juderia, Córdoba
Get lost walking along the little streets, try to enter in the many open houses to see their patios (no worries they have an iron gate locked inside)
Here you can visit the Sinagogue, the Museum of Bullfighting, Casa Andalusi and the Zoco
Just behind of The Mosque,starts an area called LA JUDERIA (Jewish Quarter).It was called this way because mostly of jewish people were installed here many years ago.Today is another very nice area of the city to explore.You'll find here a lot of narrow streets full of restaurants,souvenir's shops,typical bars and some beautiful patios full of flowers.Also here you'll find some of best and most expensive restaurants in all the city,take a look to my restaurant tip for more info.
The Jewish Quarter is a network of narrow passageways that dates back to the middle ages. Here one finds the 14th Century Synagogue (closed when I was there) which was in use until the expulsion of the jews in 1492. And close by is this handsome monument to Maimonides.
This was the famous philosopher and doctor of hebrew origins who lived here during much of the 12th century. Today, much of the quarter is home to an assortment of shops selling a variety of goods.
This is the best side of Cordoba. Take a walk through the white and narrow streets. Just walk aimless. You'll get angry if you try to use the map. One of the most nice streets is Calleja de las Flores (Flowers street). It's the one of the photo.
We strolled around the old Juewish quarter where white walls of the houses line up along the allays. As the sunlight reflected their white color, their whiteness was dazzling. I happened to look inside of some houses when I went through. Most of them had their patio and which looked very pretty.
The street that goes parallel wth the walls of the Mosque, here i found this interesting altar with a painting of the Immaculate Conception surrounded by street lamps.
Just walk and walkÂ… and get lost in the small streets in this area, just walking around this narrow streets of white houses and full of flowers, shops, crafts, courtyardsÂ… and surprisesÂ…
