Jewish Quarter (Juderia) Questions & Answers

i presume the juderia is a small area - do you really need to have a guide? will a guidebook and map do the job?

Thanks

Alex,

I don’t know if you have visited since your post but we here now and I can honestly tell you that a day tour of Cordoba with a private guide is the way to go. A six hour tour will cover the Jewish quarter as well as other the other major sites. A guide will give you a perspective on things that you will never get with a tour book. If you’re going to do it, do it right

Hi, Alex.

I think a map or a guidebook is enough. It’s a nice area to walk around, it shouldn’t take you more than 2 hours.

Hope this helps.

I wouldn’t bother with a guide, the area is small and links into the rest of the city sights. I am not sure when the Synagogue will reopen after its refurbishment, it would be worth a check before you go. We enjoyed a horse drawn carriage trip around the area. So if you have time you might want to try that.

It's a very small area and you don't need a guide. We bought a book on the city and just read up on the history. Definitely get a guide if you go into the Mesquita which is amazing.

Hi, yes it is quite small and not much left - the guide book background is probably enough...

A guide isn’t necessary though probably can give you some historical information about it. Plenty of neat shops to peruse!

You can use a guidebook and just wander at your leisure but you may well miss some very interesting parts as the streets are twisting and winding and you can quite easily get disorientated. Whatever you choose it is well worth a visit.

Yes. You don't need a guide for this area. I recommend a guide for a full 4 hours tour that may include la judería.

I don't think you need a guide - I never use one for anything. Much more fun learning and exploring on your own!

You don't need a guide! I enjoyed just walking through the streets and you won't get lost! There are a few lovely restaurants to choose from in this area!

It is a small area, many little crooked streets. Most of it is unmarked, with the exception of the statue of Maimonides. Very little "Jewish" is still there. I did it with a guide and felt that was worth while; I doubt I would have gotten much on my own--and I'm one who rarely uses guides. IF you do the hop on/off bus anyway, then you get a guided tour included; that's what I did.

No need for a guide or Hebrew language skills however, would be useful to have some Spanish.

Enjoy the area

You don’t really need a guide

It is a very small place.

What you can google about it is enough..
