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.
