Marvel at the beautiful patios of Córdoba and discover why UNESCO included them on their Intangible Heritage of Humanity list for the city's May celebrations of abundant flowers.

See a selection of 7 or 8 courtyards and get an insight into how they evolved. Travel back to their origins when Córdoba was part of the Roman Empire as the capital of the province of Hispania Baetica. Marvel at the different types of patio and capture the scent of sweet-smelling flowers.
