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.

We arrived just as a tour was starting. We were told the tour would be in Spanish, so my friend agreed to translate for me. I was handed a booklet in English to assist by the tour guide, but it seemed very rushed. As soon as the guide had finished talking, we were being ushered into the next area without... More

A series of courtyard gardens, properly cared for (doubles as a venue for conferences and events). Each different in style and tone, most attractive.

We visited Cordoba in December and we were informed by some locals that many of the patios were not open to the public during the winter and we were advised to visit the patios of the Palacio de Viana. There are two types of visit, one that includes a tour of the palace and the patios and one for the... More

We went with the intention of visiting the patios and that's what we did - they are lovely even in February as they are beautifully laid out - many fountains, quiet corners and birds. We had the place almost to ourselves and the sun was shining. We came out happy but have since discovered there is a visitable palace here... More

It made up for the perfect afternoon for me in Córdoba that has entirely suited my interest. It was very nice to just walk amidst and enjoy those beautiful patios and fountains, smelling citrus fruits, plus getting a brief history on each patio. The visit is very well-organised, especially with the map. You can easily spend an hour there walking... More

Again, January for lack of crowds, though This must be gorgeous in the late spring. A succession (17) of individual quiet patios in warm sunshine, wherein to browse, rest, just close your eyes and listen to the fountains. Bliss!

This must be one of the best attractions to visit in Córdoba. The patios are stunning in there number and design. The guide gives the seasons for the floral aspects and January is not the best period. Although our guided tour was only available in Spanish at the time of our visit an English text guide was provided. This tour... More

Córdoba is small enough that you can walk to most places that you want to see if you stay in the old centre. We walked from near the Mezquita to the Palacio de Viana along manly quiet streets. There are thirteen beautiful patios, each one very different to the others. We didn't pay to go into the palace itself as... More

Perhaps the most interesting place in Córdoba (after the Mesquite of course). Dont miss it!!, Yo can choose just to visit the patios or all the "Palacio" rooms.

The Palacio Viana is a 16th century mansion which was redone around the 1950's. There are 13 patios, each with a name. Each patio has a botanical theme - one of them has what is called a vertical garden - interesting and lovely.
