Synagogue of Cordoba
The Cordoban Synagogue is a Jewish temple built in 1315 in Moorish style.
From the street one enters into a courtyard that opens onto a hallway and then a prayer room. The prayer hall is almost square, covered with wood paneling over 6 meters high. Off to one side lies the tabernacle, which is space reserved for the Torah, topped with a large lobed archway.
On one side of the hall there is a stairway leading to the women's gallery, which connects to the prayer hall through three balconies.
After the expulsion of Jews from Spain in 1492, the Synagogue was used as a hospital, as well as a chapel and school, until it was declared a National Monument in 1885. Since then, it has passed through several phases of restoration until it was opened in 1985 with the celebration of the 850th anniversary of the birth of Maimonides.
