COURTYARD FESTIVAL IN CORDOBA
Every year on May (2020 is from 4 to 17 of May), in Cordoba they celebrate the Courtyard Festival, this is unique opportunity to enjoy the private Courtyards and way of life of this historical city of Andalusia.
During the Courtyards Festival, you’ll discover Cordoba’s lively side. Join in on the street celebrations and dance to the sounds of Flamenco while enjoying the scents of jasmine and orange blossom.
The people of Cordoba proudly open the gates of the courtyards in the old quarter of the city during the days of the festival. They deck the courtyards out specially for the occasion with pots full of geraniums, carnations and jasmines that hang from the whitewashed walls. They can be visited at practically any time of the day and the hosts always give a warm welcome. There are often even flamenco shows and the chance to taste delicious tapas from Cordoba and Montilla-Moriles wine. The festival is celebrated during the first fortnight of May. It is not, however, the only chance you will have to visit the courtyards in Cordoba.
This is a great opportunity to combine an event in Seville, Malaga or Granada with a full day excursion to this magnificent city of Andalusia and enjoy the most authentic side of Cordoba way of life and courtyards in their most explendit moment. Here we can combine the visit to the Courtyards with the Great Mosque-Cathedral and the old town of Cordoba.
Cordoba is situated in the interior of Andalusia where past and modernity blend in together. This thousand-year-old city, which has the World Heritage designation, is a living legacy of the different cultures that settled here throughout its history.Not many places in the world can say they have been the capital of Hispania Ulterior (Further Spain) under the Roman Empire, and capital of the Umayyad Caliphate. This splendour can also be seen because of the intellectualism of this city of knowledge, where figures like Seneca, Averroes or Maimonides were born.If you walk round the old quarter you will discover a beautiful network of alleyways, squares and white-washed courtyards surrounding the Great Mosque-Cathedral, which reflects the importance of the city in the Middle Ages, and is the symbol of the city.
