#SilentSunday #SundayWalks14th Century Synagogue in #Cordoba Old Town

Welcome inside the Synagogue in Cordoba in La Calle Judios (Street of the Jews) in the Jewish Quarter of the Historic City (Old Town)

This building dates back to the XIV Century 1314-1315. It is believed the synagogue belonged to a wealthy Cordoban family.

After the Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492 it was used as a hospital, later as a hermitage and finally as a nursery school.

It is the only remaining Synagogue in Andalucia and one of the few in Spain.

It was declared Historical Patrimony by UNESCO in 1994 and it has been an important tourist attraction since then.
