Full description

Enjoy a guided tour of the flower courtyards and patios of the city. The tour itinerary will take you through a selection of patio-houses that have been awarded prizes in the local competition and are located in the San Basilio Area. These beautiful courtyards, maintained throughout the year, are usually only open to the public during the popular competition that takes place in May. However, on this tour, you will be able to enjoy these private houses and their famous patios out-of-competition, without crowds and with exclusive and personal guidance from their caretakers. Discover intimate and private areas where you will have the opportunity to admire the beauty of flowers and plants and bring back to life traditions that are disappearing from habits and customs due to current ways of life. Admire the unique courtyards of the Cordoba Patios Festival, declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2012.

This was a great experience, as we admired courtyard gardens in people's homes. Our guide was fantastic, as she was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of local color beyond what we were seeing, thereby giving us a much better understanding and context.

Les patios sont très beaux mais il a énormément de monde et beaucoup d'attente. Nous n'avons pas fini la visite que nous avions réservé en français et qui était aussi en espagnol. Le guide charmant a fait de son mieux mais de devoir faire le double discours à chaque fois n'a pas facilité les échanges.

Es una ruta excelente para hacer con un bebé, viendo Iglesias, callejas, patios y murallas .. con un guia magnífico Rafael que supo enseñar y mostrar su ciudad con mucha historia y de forma muy amena y agradable, se nos hizo muy corto! Y también muy agradables todos los vecinos de los patios que visitamos. Sin duda uno de los mejores recorridos a hacer en Cordoba después de la Mezquita-Catedral.
