About the tour

Get into the main scenary of the culture in Córdoba. Joined by great experts, we will discover the legends and traditions of the jewish neigbourhood.

Getting inside through the Almodóvar Gate, we will cross step by step the narrow streets, we will visit the Synagogue, the Zoco and its activities, and we will meet some of the mostrar influential characters of our history: Al Gafequi and his glasses, Maimonides and his shiny shoes...

We will also take the most beautifull picture of the city from the magical Flowers street. And of course we will visit the narrowest street of all Andalucía, calle del Pañuelo.

To sum up, to visit the jewish neigbourhood is absolutelly essential for understanding the past of the city of the Three Cultures, and how was the relationship between muslims, cristians and jewish in the capital of Al Andalus.

PLACES WE WILL VISIT:

The jewish neigbourhood is full of interesting placer and historical buildings. Starting at the city walls, we will cross the Almodóvar Gate in direction to the University of the Letters. We will also discover the Saint Bartolomé Chapel, the Gothic- Mudéjar style treasure.

In this route, we will have a date with two of the main characters of the Three Cultures city: Maimonides and Al Gafequi.

The Zoco is also an obligatory stop in this tour through the old jewish neigbourhood; as the Synagogue is, one of the three only ones that are still preserved all over Spain.

Of course we can't finish this experience without visiting the Calle de las Flores and Calle del Pañuelo. What surpises will we find on them??

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!
