Discover why the courtyards of Cordoba are so iconic on this guided tour of the Palacio de Viana, a 14th century palace with no less than twelve of the most beautiful courtyards in the city.
Viana Palace & Courtyards Guided Tour
The courtyards of Cordoba, inherited from ancient Roman and Arab traditions, are an architectural homage to plants, light and water. Their exquisite designs, the scent of flowers and the sensation of a cool breeze on your skin make these oases of nature a true delight to the senses.
This English-language guided tour will take you on a visit of the twelve courtyards of the Palacio de Viana, journeying through five centuries of history. First built in the 14th century, the landmark has evolved from a Medieval house to a Renaissance Palace, and is one of Cordoba's most beautiful landmarks.
Whilst you explore the rooms of the palace on your tour, you'll learn all about the history of courtyards in Cordoba and their different types. Discover the oldest communal courtyard in the city, the Patio de los Gatos, which was shared between neighbouring houses in the Medieval times, as well as Renaissance courtyards that symbolise power and lineage, like the Patio del Recibo and the Patio de las Rejas, built to impress visitors.
Explore the incredible fusion of architectural and natural beauty on this guided tour of Cordoba's Viana Palace.
