Next, visit the Jewish Quarter, the most famous historical area of the medieval quarter. Discover Calleja de la Hoguera, a street where your guide will share the origins of Jewish culture in Spain and its significance to Córdoba.

Our tour was amazing! We had one tour guide for the Mosque/Cathedral, and one for the Jewish Quarter, Synagogue and Alcazar. Both tour guides were amazing! They were so knowledgeable and also very personable. We had private tours, and they took the time to give us some great local recommendations as well. I could not recommend them more!

Both guides we had for the Mezquita and Jewish quarter walk were excellent. The only complaint I have is the initial meeting. The initial meet up needs to be easier. There were several guides in the same location all with large groups. Trying to find the correct guide became a bit of a nuisance. Otherwise the guides were awesome. Would recommend 100%.

My wife and I really enjoyed our English tour in Cordoba. The Cathedral/Mosque was fantastic! Our tour guide rightfully described the building as a “Time Machine”! The walking tour of the Jewish quarter was also great with a lot of current information on the impact on the Jewish community then and now. The tour of the Alcatraz, unfortunately was not that good (not the fault of the guide) for it was used for the past 400+ years as a torture/prison center and the original palace history has been lost. What remains is 1950 archaeological finds brought to the palace for presentations. Not worth the visit as compared to the Sevilla palace.
