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.
