I loved stepping back in time and experiencing life before electricity and running water. Everything was well marked and the cultural explanations made my entire trip more interesting. I wish we had gone here first to understand the importance of the courtyard to local architecture...More

We found this well preserved residence by accident in our search for the Archaeological Museum. It is a well preserved home from centuries past where one can see how people lived. Well worth the 5 Euros.

There are lots of small, fascinating "museums" to visit in Cordoba, mostly very cheap. This is one of the very best. Simple, informative, attractively presented.

Recommended by the Parador in Cordoba, this Casa is one of several 'patios' that define Cordoba. Restored to its former glory with good interpretation boards (in English). The design of the Casa maximises the little shade available at midday to create a cool place to...More

An unexpected encounter! This small museum inside a ‘patio’ home in Cadiz has a startling and tragic story attached to it. It is well reconstructed and well worth a visit.
