Cordoba Courtyards Guided Tour Itinerary

Uncover the charming beauty of Cordoba's San Basilio neighbourhood on this guided route of six of its most picturesque courtyards. You'll learn their origins, curiosities and secrets as you hear the anecdotes of the families who live here and take care of the enclosed gardens.

Ceramic azulejo tiles, intricate latticework, blooming fruit trees, potted plants, fountains and ponds, turtles... the traditions and decorations of Islamic Iberia and the Caliph of Cordoba are visible to this day in the quaint courtyards.

At the end of your route, you'll also enjoy a short tour of the Alcazar Viejo neighbourhood and the Bethlehem Tower.

What are the courtyards?

Courtyards have been used throughout history to bring light and air to houses built around them, and have often been the location of a well which would provide water to the dwelling. During the Muslim era these spaces defined the architecture of the houses.

Cordoba Courtyard Festival

During the second and third weeks of May, Cordoba celebrates its Courtyard Festival, which has been declared Intangible Cultural Heritage. If you're lucky enough to visit during these dates, you'll enjoy the courtyards at the height of their splendour.
