Palacio de Viana

In the centre of the image could be seen the system they use to water those high pots: the cane

There are many palaces, but none are like Viana. Because in Viana, behind sober white walls, just dotted with open spaces that leave us guessing the interior, which take the form, as in any other building in Córdoba and Andalusia, the delight of the courtyards, those spaces made of air in which the architecture is at the service of the garden; where homage is paid to plants, flowers, light and water.In the courtyards of Viana, art leaves the frame or pedestal to materialise in a simple and affordable experience to smell, see and feel what is alive. In the Viana Palace we can make a historic and sensory tour of the Córdoba courtyards without leaving the building. Five centuries of history make up Viana.Five centuries where the courtyards have always been the protagonists of this building that has grown almost organically, the result of additions and alterations over time. A lived in house inhabited until the late 20th century by noble families, however, with great traditional character.
The Córdoba courtyard, heir to Roman and Arabic tradition has in Viana its greatest historical representation.

Thank you for showing us how the high pots are watered! I was wondering how the water hadn't stained
the white walls if it dribbled down. The watering system must be minimal! Great shot Jose. v
