About
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.

Beautiful patios
May 2021
The gardens are really worthwile. If you enjoy palaces the rest may be interesting, as well, but there are many and they are all alike.

Lush Andalusian patios - romantic!
May 2021 • Family
Regardless of whether you want to explore the patios on your own, with kids or with your partner, the Palacio de Viana is a neat place for old and young, for lonely travellers as well as those romantic couples. Located inside a historical palace it offers you a glimpse into the past, with visits of the interior dwelling areas as well as the patios, which to me, are probably more fascinating and the highlight. Kids will love the flowers and hide behind the trees and bushes or play with their fingers in the various fountains. For the romantic couples, a great place to disconnect from the outside world, enjoy the tranquility of nature and beauty of the flowers. Perhaps a place to propose 😉

Beautiful palace
Jul 2020 • Couples
We only found out about this palace because the hotel staff told us. I didn’t expect the palace to be so beautiful. We only did the garden tour. The only thing is we went 2 hours before it closed and they didn’t offer the full tour inside, which we would have loved to do. It’s worth the visit.

Stunning patios
Jun 2019
Palacio de Viana was a chance visit for us and it proved to be a beauty. We were in Cordoba primarily for the Mezquita Cathedral and as we had some spare time we wandered the streets, and here was this lovely palace! We thought ourselves fortunate to be able to see such a marvelous place. The patios are amazing and so is the whole building. Great to visit if you can.

Wonderful Surprise
Mar 2020 • Couples
We visited Cordoba primarily to see the Mosque/Cathedral and only visited the Palacio de Viana to fill a gap in our schedule. What a wonderful surprise! We loved passing through each of the beautiful courtyards and gardens and were extremely lucky to have each one to ourselves. It was the highlight of our day in Cordoba.

Wonderful Gardens
Feb 2020
What a peaceful place! So very beautiful. We visited in February when nothing was in bloom but it was a very lovely experience. We did the full tour of the interior of the palace followed by the tour of the splendid gardens. Many photo opportunities. Highly recommended.

Oasis
Feb 2020 • Couples
After a busy day in Sevilla we ended up in this palace in Cordoba. It was a quiet oasis. We have only visited the gardens but this was certainly worth it. In this time of the year some plants had flowers.

A disappointment
Dec 2019 • Friends
I was anxious to visit this location because I read positive reviews. The gardens were well appointed and fun to see the variety. When we purchased tickets at the door, we were told theEnglish tour of the palace was in 45 minutes. We waited and then were told there were no English tours, only Spanish. French and English speakers were given a paper with very abbreviated information. We stayed at the rear of the tour so Spanish speakers could hear and then took our turn to look at the rooms. The guide was signaling us to move along. The room furnishings were shabby and not very interesting.
Quite a disappointment and a tourist attraction we could have skipped

An old noble house in historical Cordoba ...
Mar 2019
Cordoba is famous for its inner courtyards (the "Cordobese patios"), remnants of roman, arabic and renaissance traditions in the Andalusian's architectural styles. Patios were considered as symbols of nobility and lineage. A visit to "Palacio de Viana" is therefore highly recommended: a noble house opened for visitors! It dates as far back as the 15th century, having 12 interconnected patios, gardens, a library of more than 7,000 books and collections of tapestries, paintings, silverware, clocks, weapons, furniture and porcelains. Along the centuries, "Palacio de Viana" has endured many restorations and even some structures, remaining from the Roman period in Andalusia, where found during works. One last remark: check carefully, before going, its opening hours and prices, as there are different fares for visiting the patios and the palace itself. Enjoy!

Absolutely stunning! Must visit in Córdoba!
Dec 2019 • Family
This was one of the highlights of our short trip to Cordoba. We were blessed with a sunny day so we got to enjoy this amazing home. Please more you can’t visit inside but the gardens are absolutely lovely. We even went in the winter and the plants were blooming and stunning.
