    I made the visit on May 23 at 6:00 p.m. The guide was very kind and friendly, he gave us all kinds of explanations and information. The two hours were short for us because of the pleasantness of the visit. I'm sorry I don't remember his name well, I don't know if it was José Manuel or José Miguel, but I totally recommend it.

    There are a total of 5 patios, all of which are really a splendor of flowers. We had booked an English tour and were informed the day before that the tour was only offered in Spanish. The meeting point was poorly described, we found the Spanish group at the last minute. Since we didn't understand anything, it was only a means to an end for us to get into the courtyards. Only there did we realize that we could have gone on our own... But the driver seemed nice and tried very hard. She didn't even know that we would go with her.

    It depends on the interests of each one, but I think that the guided tour helps you better understand how it evolves from one year to the next. I was very lucky because being low season, there were hardly any people. The guide answers the questions and recounts the peculiarities of each patio.
