The Córdoba city's inhabitants, - first the Romans and later the Moslems - adapted the typical design of the popular house to their needs, making the home centre around an inner courtyard (patio in Spanish) , normally with a fountain in the middle and filling the courtyard with plants to give the sensation of freshness.

Since 1921, the Town Hall has organised a competition of Courtyards and Crosses in the first week of May, and the owners decorate their houses with great care to try and win the prestigious award offered by the authorities. This Festival of the Courtyards of Córdoba has been declared by UNESCO Intangible Heritage of Humanity in 2012.

The Córdoba´s Courtyards guided tour gives you an overview of the culture of the patios. Accompanied by an expert guide, you will visit a selection of popular houses courtyards, winners of various prizes in the municipal contest, located in the neighborhood of San Basilio or in the neighborhoods of San Lorenzo and Santa Marina.

You will enjoy the popular Córdoba´s Courtyards with a personal treatment from caregivers. You will speak with owners, you meet their experiences, their daily work, anecdotes, feelings…
