On this tour wewill walk around the Jewish Quarter of Cordoba and then visit some of the city's most famous patios, that have been awarded prizes in the past few years. The guide will point out some of the main architectural differences between the two types of patios you will see in Cordoba.
There are two main types of patio in Cordoba. The first is at a one-family home in which the rooms are arranged around the courtyars. These usually have arches and either a clay tiled or decorative pebbled floor. The second type is called a neighbor's house (casa de vecinos). Here the individual homes look out onto the courtyard.There are usually two floors and the courtyard is made all the more attractive by the long balconies, staircases and baked clay roof tiles. The floors usually have decorative pebbles and there is often a well instead of a fountain, as well as a communal washing room.
Finally, we will have a good time drinking some wine and eating tapas with possibly some livelocal music.
