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.

Excellent.

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

One of the most interesting parts of a little understood city, away from the Mezquita in the northern 'Palacio' area, which is steeped in the Middles Ages - an intriguing blend of the Moorish and the Renaissance..

We bought ticket only to the gardens (after reading other reviews on tripadvisor which didn't recommend the interior), which was 5 euro per person including kids. There are many gardens/patios of different styles but nothing else. It took 40 mins to see it all. Our Michelin guide gave it two stars which seems way too much.

Definitely worth a visit. A selection of beautiful and tranquil courtyards, filled with flowers and fountains. We paid the extra 3€ each for the tour of the interior of the house, which in my opinion was only moderately interesting. The guide spoke in Spanish but I think French and English information sheets are available.

We visited this place in 32 degrees C. It is a little outside the normal Cordoba for tourists, take bus no 5 or a taxi. We only visited the garden. The 12 patios have been made during a period of nearly 500 years, from 1500, and naturally are different, but all interesting. Beautiful flowers, trees, Delightful scents.
