Full description

Enjoy a guided tour of the flower courtyards and patios of the city. The tour itinerary will take you through a selection of patio-houses that have been awarded prizes in the local competition and are located in the San Basilio Area. These beautiful courtyards, maintained throughout the year, are usually only open to the public during the popular competition that takes place in May. However, on this tour, you will be able to enjoy these private houses and their famous patios out-of-competition, without crowds and with exclusive and personal guidance from their caretakers. Discover intimate and private areas where you will have the opportunity to admire the beauty of flowers and plants and bring back to life traditions that are disappearing from habits and customs due to current ways of life. Admire the unique courtyards of the Cordoba Patios Festival, declared Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2012.

Includes
  • Tour of private patios that are open after May Festival

The patios are very beautiful but it is very crowded and has a long wait. We did not finish the tour that we had booked in French and which was also in Spanish. The charming guide did his best but having to do the double talk each time did not facilitate the exchanges.

Unique and universal Cordoba

It is an excellent route to do with a baby, seeing churches, alleys, patios and walls ... with a magnificent guide Rafael who knew how to teach and show his city with a lot of history and in a very pleasant and pleasant way, it was very short! And also very nice all the neighbors of the patios that we visit. Without a doubt one of the best tours to do in Cordoba after the Mosque-Cathedral.

Rafael, the fantastic guide I put a 10

The beautifully organized courtyards and Rafael repeated a 10. On the other hand, when I saw that all the people about 15 or so charged them directly, I asked him if they were € 12 for the normal price and it really was. I did it with you online and I paid 15. That difference bothered me since he was surprised saying he didn't know why we paid too much
