The Roman tradition of the impluvium, combined with the Arab culture, gave rise to the Andalusian courtyard or patio, a protected interior area that served as the focal point of people’s social and family lives. In Cordoba you can see many stunning courtyards, but the paradigm is to be found at Viana Palace (also called Las Rejas de Don Gome). It has eleven courtyards – all unique and immensely beautiful – with evocative names like the Patio of the Gardeners, the Madame, the Well, the Iron Bars, the Orange Trees, etc. It also has a garden covering almost 1,200 m2, in the Baroque style with touches reminiscent of Arab culture.
