When I say there’s not much else to see in Córdoba, that’s mostly correct. However, if you are fascinated by ongoing traditions and want a little more sense of history I recommend seeking out the statue of Moses Maimonides, the medieval Jewish philosopher sometimes called the “Jewish St. Thomas Aquinas“.

This statue sits next to the synagogue that was built in Córdoba in 1350.

They say that if you visit the statue and rub Moses Maimonides’ foot it will bring you good luck.

The foot of the statue is very shiny compared to the rest which is quite tarnished from age so it’s getting rubbed alot.

William The Sheep was not ashamed to rub the foot for luck!
