What people are saying about Córdoba Synagogue

Very comprehensive visit. Very pleasant English speaking guide. This is particularly interesting for the Alccazar because it is impossible to book directly on the site of the castle, the CNI or French passport numbers do not fit in the boxes and an identity document is required to book.

The guide spoke French very well and knows the historical heritage very well, which she showed us around. The city and its history are extraordinary.

Activity to do to visit the main monuments of the city. Very interesting visit thanks to Estafonia who is a passionate guide.

Entertaining guides, with knowledge of the facts, although somewhat sweetened

The very professional guide and with the subjects well studied
