Part of this route takes in the medieval Jewish quarter of Cordoba, full of evocative places steeped in history, past whitewashed facades and down narrow, winding streets. We pass by Plaza Tiberias, dedicated to Jewish philosopher Maimonides, a philosopher, physician, translator and theologian from Cordoba, whose thinking revolutionized the intellectual circles of his time. We also have the chance to enter the 14th century Sephardic synagogue and admire the surviving traces of its original Mudejar decoration. It is the only synagogue in Andalusia to have survived the expulsion of the Jews in 1492.
The Mosque-Cathedral is the star attraction in the second part of our route. This superb monument is the emblem of the city, and its unique blend of different forms of religious expression and breathtaking architecture only serve to emphasise the message that the two religions have more in common than we think. This veritable artistic jewel is a faithful reflection of Cordoba’s history and leads us to a clearer understanding of our past and present.
All in all, this guided tour takes us on a trip through the three monotheistic religions, from the former Great Mosque converted into Cathedral to one of the few synagogues from before the expulsion of the Jews still standing in Spain.
