Owner description: The Palace of Viana is a lived house until the end of 20th century by noble families but with a great popular flavor instead. One of its main attractiveness are the "patios" and the garden that make it be known as Museum of the Patios. Indoor and outdoor are perfectly integrated, giving to the palace an original harmony. Among the collections stand out paintings, tapestries, leather and ceramic tiles among others.

“Outstanding palace with beautiful gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

A beautiful old house which has more patios than the Alhambra each one stunning in its own right. The house is built around several courtyards which give the house and amazing feel. The house tour itself was less interesting mainly due to the guide speaking so fast people lost interest but the gardens are a must see

“Spend Some Time and Relax Here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

We stumbled upon the Palacio de Viana and spent a pleasant afternoon strolling through the gorgeous gardens. Each patio was lovelier than the next. If you enjoy gardens, this is a must see!

“Enjoyed the gardens but a house tour was not available”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Since we were visiting Cordoba in the off season visiting the gardens here seemed the best way to imagine what Cordoba would look like in prime patio season. The gardens were certainly worth the walk from our hotel as we were able to see many lovely buildings and plazas along the way.

“Perfect quiet get-away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

The patios are outstanding - jasmine, orange, lemon scents. Each patio with its own personality. The orange tree patio (with orange trees that date back more than 100 years) simply quite outstanding. Probably the best museum map that I have seen in a very long while. Be prepared for a short hike until you find a cab.

“Missed this last visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Determined to see it this trip to Cordoba and well worth it. Had a guided tour but as we don't have Spanish couldn't get the most from it although found it interesting to see the palace and the guide didn't charge us. The patios are beautiful and worth visiting just for themselves.
