The Palacio de Viana launches its new ticket sales system

The Palacio de Viana, declared a National Historic-Artistic Monument and an Artistic Garden, is one of the main tourist attractions in Córdoba. The singularity conferred by its 12 courtyards makes it known as the Museum of the Courtyards.

The Cordovan patio, heir to the Roman and Arab tradition, has its widest historical representation in Viana. In recent years the influx to this monument has been increasing, reaching a figure around 150,000 annual visitors.


Five centuries of history make up Viana. Five centuries where the patios have always been the protagonists of this building that has been growing almost organically, as a result of extensions and reforms over time. A living house inhabited until the end of the 20th century by noble families and, however, with a great popular taste.

The history of the Palace dates back to the 14th century. It is believed that the main façade was designed by Juan de Ochoa in the 16th century and that in subsequent years numerous extensions were added to the palace, giving rise to the irregular silver that it presents today.

Throughout its five centuries of history, the palace has passed through the hands of 18 noble families. Among its owners are the Marqueses de Villaseca and the Marqueses de Viana, who lived there until the property was sold in 1980 to Cajasur, the current owner of the Palacio de Viana.

The courtyards of the Palace of Viana

The main attraction of the Palacio de Viana is its twelve patios, which make up the most important collection of Cordovan patios in the Caliphal city. These outdoor spaces bring together the essence of Roman and Arabic architecture so characteristic of Córdoba.

The twelve patios are linked by galleries and house a wide variety of aromatic plants, citrus trees and fountains. Visiting the courtyards of the Palacio de Viana is a perfect opportunity to discover the importance of vegetation and water in the medieval houses of Córdoba.
