The Palace of Viana is a lived house until the end of 20th century by noble families but with a great popular flavor instead. One of its main attractiveness are the "patios" and the garden that make it be known as Museum of the Patios. Indoor and outdoor are perfectly integrated, giving to the palace an original harmony. Among the collections stand out paintings, tapestries, leather and ceramic tiles among others.

The courtyards of Córdoba have their roots in Moorish and Mediterranean culture dating back many hundreds of years. One of the most splendid examples is the Viana Palace, with a stately home, garden and a dozen beautiful courtyards. Anyone who loves flowers will much enjoy the sights and smells here. Wander around by yourself, and take photographs. When we went,... More

The courtyards are impressive and are worth the visit, but I was really disappointed that we could not visit the Palace itself. Visiting the courtyards gives only a very limited idea of what the palace is like. For what you get, the price charged for the courtyards is at the high end.

Dear friend, It´s a pity that you couldn´t visit the interior. It´s true that our tours are in spanish, but we have written translation in English or French to follow the tour. We always inform to foreigners that the tours are in Spanish as well as it´s easy to follow them with the brochure we give at the interior. So... More

If you don't have time to visit a selection of Cordoba's famous patios or they're not open, all you have to do is visit this one place. It has a multitude of patios surrounding the palacio - each different, atmospheric and beautiful. The palacio is outside the busy historic centre of Cordoba but it's well worth the ten or fifteen...

This visit was recommended to us by our Hotel receptionist who pointed it out on the map - do take a street map as it isn't that easy to find but we enjoyed our walk. The Viana Palace was named a National Monument of Historical and Artistic Interest in 1980 and a Historical-Artistic Garden in 1983. It houses thirteen patio... More

This palace has something like eleven or twelve different courtyards, each with a different theme. They are all beautiful.

Hidden gem, amazing patios, peaceful and tranquil. Would recommend. Easy walk up from the mesquita, take a street map as hard to find.

For 5 euros per person, we visited just the Gardens and Patios. I believe for 8 euros, you can get a guided tour in Spanish. There were about 13 Gardens. We came in May - also the same timeframe as the Patio Festival. I would say come when flowers are in bloom. However, it was pretty much the same type... More

You don't get to see much of the interior of the house. The gardens in the patios are nice but after seeing the gardens at the Alcazar, they were nothing special. Save your Euros for another attraction.

There are 12 patios inside and the season we went is the best period. Colorful flowers and green trees to have a peaceful time inside.

We had visited Cordoba on a number of occasions around the time of the Festival of the Patios and seen many of the patios, but we had not had the opportunity to see the Palacio de Viana. This time we decided to visit a little earlier than the festival, as we knew how crowded the patios get when the festival... More
