The Festival of the Courtyards (Patios) of Córdoba was declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO in 2012
specially recommend this tour because you it gives us a taste of the real essence of Córdoba – not just the sites but also the traditions, as we can see how the courtyard owners make such an effort to keep in trim these beautiful areas in their houses. The festival is held in May every year and was declared Intangible Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO in 2012. Some of the courtyards also contain craft workshops, where you can purchase leather goods and items made from traditional Cordovan silver filigree.
