CORDOBA City Hall has withdrawn its application to have the famous patios declared a UN Intangible Heritage Site after receiving notice that the UN technical committee had not viewed it favourably.
The May Patio Festival has long been a steady feature on Cordoba’s social calendar. Since 1918 in a bid to preserve the famous Andalucian patio, green-fingered Spaniards have been dressing them up with water features, geraniums, roses, carnations and many other pretty plants.
Many houses in the ancient city of Cordoba date back hundreds of years and this Patio Festival, with over 40 different homes participating, offers the unique chance to step inside and view these architectural wonders in their full glory.
