Patios Festival of Cordoba
The People's Patios Competition is on the second or third weekend in May. It is a unique tradition in the world based on the Cordoba lifestyle in homes with landscaped courtyards and balconies where the flowers are the focal point.
The owners of the courtyards dress up to win the contest and open their patios to all visitors who want to admire them. The smell of jasmine and orange blossom mixes with flamenco music during this spectacular journey. The most famous courtyards are found in the neighborhoods of Axerquía, St. Augustine and St. Basil.
