Full description
This visit offers an overview of the culture of the patios, the flower courtyards 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 San Basilio Area. These beautiful courtyards, maintained throughout the year, are usually only opened to the public during the popular competition that takes place in May.

    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

    This was a great experience, as we admired courtyard gardens in people's homes. Our guide was fantastic, as she was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of local color beyond what we were seeing, thereby giving us a much better understanding and context.
