Floral House in Cordoba, Spain

From series “Unique Living Houses”
Those in love with live flowers should visit Cordoba. Every year, this Spanish city hosts the amazing festival called Patios de Cordoba. During the festival, city residents decorate their homes and the surrounding area with pots of fresh flowers. Only at this time, tourists can freely walk along the courtyards of many houses and admire their rich floral decoration.

Floral House in Cordoba, Spain The tradition of decorating facades and patios with flowers in Cordoba and other cities in Spain has appeared long time ago. However, the streets of the city are literally drowning in flowers in the days of the festival. Hundreds of years ago, the locals have been fixing pots with live plants on the facades of houses in order to protect homes from the sweltering heat. Over the time, decorating houses with living flowers has become a tradition. Many homes have cozy patios that are also literally immersed in the abundance of living plants. Often, you can also see the fountains and artificial waterfalls in the patio.

The Festival of Patios de Cordoba is held since 1932. It always attracts a huge number of tourists. As previously noted, only in the days of the festival, the locals open to visitors their patios and prepare special flower decoration. On the last day of the festival, the jury selects the winner. The festival usually takes place in the first half of May. It’s accompanied by a set of amazing gastronomic and entertainment events. In early May, the ancient Andalusian city is simply irresistible.
