Plaza del Cardenal Salazar

This square is right in the centre of the Jewish Quarter. Its most emblematic building is the former Agudos Provincial Hospital, founded by the Cordoban cardinal Pedro de Salazar in the year 1701, and now home to the Faculty of Philosophy and Arts, with its impressive courtyards and cloisters and the 13th century Mudejar Chapel of San Bartolomé. Right in front of the main façade stands a statue of Al-Gafeqi, the famous 12th century Cordoban eye specialist, and the Convent of San Pedro Alcántara, founded at the end of the 17th century.
