Synagogue Cordoba

This Sinagoga was built in 1315, and survived the Jewish expulsion of 1492.

 

After that, the building was devoted to various functions including a hospital, a chapel for shoemakers and nursery school. It was declared a National Monument in 1885. It has since undergone several phases of restoration - in 1929 and one started in 1977 for the reopening of the building in 1985 to celebrate the 850th anniversary of birth of Maimonides who was born in Cordoba in 1135.
