Fiesta of the Patios in Cordoba

Language: English

For twelve days at the beginning of May, the city of Cordova celebrates the Fiesta of the patios when residents decorate their shared patios with abundant arrays of plants, carefully designed and attractively arranged for public viewing. The fiesta has two prominent elements: the ‘Patio Competition' and the ‘Festival of the Patios of Cordova'. The competition awards prizes to patios in different categories based on their decorations. The festival consists of performances, normally in larger patios, of traditional Cordovan folk singing and dancing.
