Once the former residence of the Marquis of Viana, Palacio de Viana contains a vast collection of tiles, furniture, tapestries, porcelain, paintings, muskets, and a 7,000-volume library. With its ornate Mannerist facade, the 16th-century building stands as an architectural gem. After viewing the museum’s collection, stroll through the gardens and beautiful patios, which have been added over time by successive occupants of the palace. Visitors with reduced mobility can use the mapped route passing through nine out of the 12 patios.

  • We visited only the patios. We have them imagine in flowers. To visit at all different kinds of plants flowering. A jewel

  • Gardens are beautiful,but don't miss the guided Tour of the Palace. Fascinating interior from several centuries. Only available in Spanish, although the guide's English was excellent. 
  • Many small, separate gardens of an old noble family. Green + water as an expression of luxury and Andalusian Joie de vivre.

  • Michelin #2 site in Cordoba (2 stars), saying: "This palace was extended on several occasions between the 14C and the 19C, which gives you an idea of the changes in civil architecture in Córdoba during this period. This unique and surprising complex of buildings covers an area of about 6 500m2, mostly taken up twelve magnificent patios and a garden. Admire the palace's beautiful interior, in particular the Salón de los Sentidos, decorate in mother-of-pearl, and a collection of embossed Cordoban leather (15C-19C)."
  • We did the tour of the house as well as the patios. The house is amazing and has some wonderful antiques and pieces of furniture inside. Note that the house tour is only given in Spanish (at least it was at the time of this review 9th June 2016) with a pamphlet of the English translation. The patios at the Palacio are some of the nicest we saw in Cordoba and are free to enter - you only pay to see the house but this has to be via guided tour. The walk to the Palacio also takes you through some different areas of the city which can be a nice change depending upon where you are based.
  • Did the free tour through the 12 patios. Its ok, beautiful gardens. Didnt do the paid tour inside the palace, probably is not worth it
  • Not tasty, bad value for the cost
  • Just so we visited a little over and it was nice to see.
