  • A nice small museum showcasing the history of the Jews, expelled from Spain in 1492. There's a fair bit about Maimonodes, one of the most important intellectuals of the 12th/13th century- he died in 1204- who was a Jewish man from Cordoba. It's worth the small price of admission, though many of the artifacts lack full explanation.
  • Good introduction into the Sephardic heritage + judaism. The museum is located in a traditional house with patio. Info in several languages
