We visited the patios only which are lovely little gardens with fountains, shadow of the orange&lemon trees and the beautiful flowers of Cordoba&Andalucia. It is a nice place to escape from the hot Andalusian summer.

We walked here from the historic centre, passing fascinating old churches and streets, and a beautiful park. The Palace itself is an oasis of green, filled with several gardens, lots of fountains and water elements incorporated from Arabic culture, and of course so green, with a wonderful selection of trees. The whole area of the palace watered from a well.... More

Well worth the visit to see the grandeur of Spanish living. Make sure you do the full tour to see the living quarters which are equally spectacular.

A very nice place that stand out in the sense that not many turist go here. For about an hour I was more or less alone in the 12 patios (Gardens) which is a part of this mansion just enjoying the silence and calmness. A nice contrast to other turist attractions like La Mezquita that are just packed! There was... More

Lovely gardens.If you like gardens, this is a must see. If you want to escape some of the crowding in the streets of Cordoba, come here. We had trouble finding this, as Cordoba, unlike Venice, has very little signage to direct the tourist. About 30-40 minute walk from the Cordoba old city.There was a line on Saturday, but it was...

Found information of this in the tourist information centre in Cordoba. Well worth the walk to see. Some of the patios have a modern twist but all are stunning and provide a pleasant shady distraction from the well known tourist attractions. Did not do the added guided tour of the upper floor as had done a similar tour in Seville.... More

Dont try going on a Monday its closed! But it is well worth getting off the tourist bus to see. Get the bus for two days because 17e for one day isn't enough time to get around it all and two days are only 4 e more.

Guided tour is in Spanish to visit the leather wall hangings, historic chattels and firearms in 2nd floor. There are 12 beautiful patios and each has a different name. Some of them were decorated with modern arts of installation.

A series of courtyard gardens belonging to an old house, each one set out differently. Definitely worth a visit. Some cool spots to get away from the heat. Interesting plants. Gave me some paving ideas for my garden.
