Patios from Cordoba

We invite you to visit some magical and unique places with the book Los patios de Córdoba, by Manuel González Mestre (text) and Jacobo Muñiz (illustrations). 
Cordoba opens every May the doors of its popular patios for the enjoyment of neighbors and visitors. More than fifty yards has been competing since 1933 for its beauty, ornamentation, plants, water use, lighting...

The origin of these urban oases goes back thousands of years back in the Arabian Peninsula and Persia but it would be the Roman Empire that established the bases of the present courtyards. In the book you will discover much more of its festival, recognized by Unesco as Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
