Plaza of Maimonides

September 13, 2004

The plaza of Maimonides, a small patio that commemorates the Talmudic scholar with a statue and plaque. Apparently Maimonides - as well as other famous Jewish scholars, quite possibly the ones with "ibn" in their names - lived in Cordoba, which at one time was a much larger city with a thriving Muslim and Jewish population.
