Roman traditions fused with the scent of brightly coloured flowers and the history of Mozarabic influences bring you a unique tour through the courtyards of Cordoba.

Description

Come and enjoy the Viana Palace and courtyards tour; a perfect blend of Arab magic that sweeps the streets of Córdoba and Roman legends that once invaded the streets. Flowers and aromas decorate every one of the 12 courtyards of the Viana Palace of the Marquises.

Accompanied by an English speaking guide, wander through every room that make up this palace. From the Patio de Gatos (Cat´s Courtyard) famous for its origin and medieval  history right up as far as the Renaissance patios like the Patio de Recibo (Reception Courtyard), a clear representation of the luxury and the royal descent that lay hidden behind the walls of Viana. 

Enjoy a pleasant walk filled with flowers, scents, light and tradition based on Cordoba´s nobility. The palace is an architectural example of the city´s past. Right in the heart of the hustle and bustle of the popular neighbourhood of Santa María this magnificent palace was erected; it is composed of 12 courtyards and a garden featuring a wide range of art collections, mosaics and great tapestries of flowers and colours whose last owner, the Marchioness de Viana managed to look after from the origins of the palace in the XIV century. 

Enter the magnificent Viana Palace and get lost in the labyrinth of its courtyards and fountains, which take us back to the old Andalusia. We´ll begin by learning about every bit of history hidden in the palace´s courtyards, the lush green garden until we reach the inside 

where we will admire the frescoes of the great hall or the luxurious and vintage furniture that decorate all the rooms like the Dormitorio Negro (Black Bedroom) or the Salón Rojo (Red Hall) until we reach the Country Kitchen. You will experience life as a genuine Noble of the more traditional Cordoba. There is no better way of delving deep into the old history of this city. 

We will explore one of the must-see sites on this journey. The mixture of past cultures, nobility and marquises make our Viana Palace and courtyards guided tour the best option when it comes to visiting Cordoba.
