Visit to the "Patios" (courtyards) during the Festival of the Patios of Cordoba

Our city has one of the biggest historic quarters in Europe. Our team of official guides can guide you through the infinite maze of whitewashed streets, where the plain simplicity of the exterior walls contrasts with the wealth of detail on the inside. Through the different districts there are over 50 courtyards which you can visit - discover the charming interiors awash with a riot of pelargoniums, clivias, jasmine, bougainvillea, among endless varities of flowering plants.

The traditional Cordoban house has its roots in Mediterranean architecture and lifestyle, where the central courtyard is the focal point of family life. They are not museums, but real, inhabited places where their owners open their doors to the public for a short period each year and make a great effort to show off these beautiful floral treasures at their best moment of the year.Each courtyard is different, and each one has its own particular atmosphere and personality. This visit gives us the chance to see a wide range of different buildings, from huge stately homes to modest family houses, from the most modern to the most ancient.

In December 2012, the Festival of the Cordoba Patios was declared World Heritage, which further increased the value of these oases of charm and colour. Visiting the courtyards is an authentic delight for the senses, whether you go during the day or at night.
