Description

The Patios of Cordoba Free Walking Tour will take you to the main enclaves where this colourful festival is celebrated every May. As our journey starts, you will enjoy this symphony of colour and smell of flowers at any time of the year and we will go into four of the most representative patios of this event that participate in the official contest. We take care of everything!

The Patios of Cordoba Festival is considered a traditional contest since 1921, when it was approved the idea of rewarding the neighbouring patios with a better care, dedication and attention of decoration. From that moment, it has gained more and more importance until it became a festival declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2012.

As we continue our Patios of Cordoba Free Walking Tour, our Spanish speaking guide will explain each contest modality in terms of old and renovated architecture, and will tell us the interesting stories and legends of the most picturesque neighbourhoods where the popular Patios of Cordoba are located.

In addition, we will have the chance to enjoy a nice conversation with the owners of the houses, who live there and take care of the patios, and we can ask them some questions about the maintenance and care of the flowers. See you there!
