THE PATIOS OF CÓRDOBA

We know that throughout history patios, as physical space incorporated into private homes, have existed since the time of the Greeks. The Roman influence added water as an element to these patios, and it was the Arabs who transformed patios into a place where people socialized.



Today, we could say that a large majority of homes in the historical city center of Córdoba have patios. We also know that it was traditional for neighbors to visit each other’s patios during the month of May.



Today Córdoba is known for its popular and festive Patios Festival as a unique event, giving the city a special mark of hospitality, in which Córdoba shines because of its smell and color thanks to these patios that open their doors throughout the month of May.



On December 6, 2012, UNESCO declared the Patios Festival of Córdoba as an intangible World Heritage aspect of culture.



It is without doubt that UNESCO has awarded this Price, especially the intangible element, because it’s more than just the geranium pots or the watering can, but rather “the way of life as carried out in the patios”, the fact that a group of neighbors would open their doors to share with visitors their most intimate habitats which they protect with much care throughout the rest of the year.



The patios aren’t set up in a matter of a couple of days. The patios are the product of many years of gardening, placement, watering, hanging and enjoying these plants as much as the rest of the elements of a public space, and the enjoyment of all the senses within the framework of a private home.
