Andalusian patios- Colourful Spanish Courtyards
It is a unique tradition in the world, based on the characteristics of the Andalusian lifestyle, reflected in houses with landscaped courtyards and balconies, which include flowers as decoration.
One feature that stands out from the Andalusian cityscape is undoubtedly its beautiful patios. Inherited from the Roman culture and the Muslim space, southern Spain have these dream places adorned with pots and accompanied, in many cases, from sources which govern the place. The yard is no longer just a place to cool off on hot summer afternoons, but also a tradition that has been maintained over the centuries.
Therefore, there are contests and tours promoting precisely the conservation of Andalusian identity.
There are many places of Andalusia where you can admire the courtyards, among these is the Conil de la Frontera, Estepona, Cordoba is the protagonist of the aesthetics of Andalucía, Chipiona, old town of Marbella, Frigiliana, Ronda and other places of enchantments that invite us to daydreaming and enjoying the Andalusian architecture. This year Córdoba celebrates the Courtyards festival from 2nd until 15th of May.
