Monument to the Patio carers

The twitter of birds, ripple of water and the odor of flowers will make you forget the world for moments. Nothing reminds you of being in the heart of such a vibrant and busy city.Many Patios are furnished, because Cordobans love it to enjoy warm summer nights staying outside and chattering with their neighbors.The Patio Festival is a tradition that began in 1918. During the Spanish civil war it had been interrupted and became reintroduced in the 1950s. The festival is intended to make hidden treasures available to the public. Furtermore, it is to honor the residents’ efforts to retain these traditional places.The festival is a tradition which is unique in the world. By the way, there is a saying the patios of Cordoba would be the most beautiful courtyards all across Spain. We believe this is true. So does Unesco, the United Nations’ cultural organization. As of 2012, the Cordoba Patios belong to the world cultural heritage.
