Description

Leave Seville by coach for Córdoba. Tour the beautiful courtyards of Córdoba. The festival celebrating the courtyards was added to the UNESCO Intangible Heritage list in 2012. The courtyards are located in the historical heart of the Jewish Quarter, close to the Alcazar.
Due to the hot, dry climate, the city's inhabitants-first the Romans and later the Moors-adapted the typical design of the popular house to their needs, centering the home around an inner courtyard with a fountain in the middle and often a well to collect rainwater. The Moorish inhabitants gave the houses entrances from the street and filled the courtyard with plants to give the sensation of freshness.
Discover one of the reasons why Córdoba is a city with an impressive cultural and monumental patrimony.
Lunch included. You’ll have free time in the afternoon.
