In the case of my city, it was a place of gathering and prosperity for the Jews. Under the Caliphate, they were allowed to continue their rites and traditions. This coexistence between religions allowed an economic and social boom. The Jews also obtained important positions in the administration, such as Hasday Ibn Shaprut, Prime Minister of the Umayyad Caliphate of Abdarrahman III. We cannot forget that Cordoba was the birthplace of the philosopher and doctor Maimonides, whose statue can be viewed close to this site.
The House of Sepharad is a museum and cultural centre opened to the public in 2006. Inside you have the opportunity to view Sephadic culture, history, and traditions. It is located in an old Jewish house from the 14th century in the heart of the Jewish Quarter and just in front of the Synagogue of Cordoba.
The museum brings the Jewish past to life and explores the Judeo-Spanish and Sephardic identity of this country.
Sinagogue of Córdoba(Mudejar Style)
This means we are looking at the Mudejar style, Islamic art produced during the Christian period.
It is the best conserved of the three medieval synagogues that are preserved in Spain, because its basic architectural structure was never affected by alterations, and it is the only medieval synagogue preserved in Andalusia. The two other synagogues in the Mudejar style are the “Santa María la Blanca” and the “Sinagoga del Tránsito”, both in Toledo.
