“gorgeous, inspiring, not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2011

this lovely little 12thc house built around a central courtyard is absolutely gorgeous and I thought it was one of the best sights in Cordoba. You visit 5? ground floor rooms of the house, the central courtyard brimming with wonderful plants, and 2 smaller courtyards at the side, and the basement with roman mosaic. Highly recommended.

“An inspiring treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2011

I came across this beautiful Andalusian haven while walking down the cobble stoned Calle Judios. I payed it 2.50 euros, not expecting much, but when I took the tour around the house and down to the cellar, I was more than amazed. It is a spiritual experience more than a tour. I learned so many things. For one, I had no idea that Cordoba was the first city in Europe that made paper, and that Al-Hakam II of Cordoba's library surpassed 500,000 manuscripts while the other libraries in Europe didn't even reach 200!!!!!!!! As I walked around admiring the beautiful mosaics, tiles, and flowers, I saw a man sitting on a bench meditating to the music. I felt at home somehow as the people who greeted me were very personable and kind. I was even served lemonade while walking around!! Apparently the owner lives on the second floor, and you could smell delicious food coming from the kitchen downstairs. What a lovely experience! I definitely recommend this attraction to anyone who comes to the beautiful hidden treasure that is Cordoba.

“Nice people, hopeful message”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2010

An inspiring figure, owner Salma reigns over this little palace of medieval Moorish culture in the heart of Cordoba's Juderia. Comes complete with a collection of artifacts and an authentic Roman mosaic in the basement.

This place could ideally be an inspiration for multi-culturalism, far from the divisive lines that define us as nationals and groups.

“An absolute experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2006

A casual walk in the Juderia section of Cordoba led me to an open doorway leading to this paper museum. Situated in a beautifully restored, traditional courtyard house, the experience of walking around the house is more interesting than simply the unique display of paper-making equipement. There is also a small shop to purchase Andalusian music, books and small merchandise.. This museum is part of two - the other being the tower museum across the river - owned by the same owner.
