Cordoba pation festival 2019.

Hoping to achieve a long-held dream by visiting the Cordoba patio festival next year. Anyone know yet when it is on? Do we need to buy tickets to see the courtyards and where can we get these from? Appreciate any help.

1. Re: Cordoba pation festival 2019.

May 6-19, 2019, is when the patio festival is held.

You need not buy any tickets. You just get a map from many points downtown and walk to the different patios that are on the map. For me this is the most colorful festival in Spain. You will enjoy it.

For Cordoba:

Use Booking.com to look for hotels and apartments in The Real Heart of Cordoba. For those making a day trip to Cordoba, the train station does not have luggage lockers but the bus station beside it has luggage lockers. A taxi to the Mezquita will cost only about 6 euros because the distance from the train station is only 1.8 km.

The best sights in Cordoba:

1. Mezquita/Cathedral - The most important architectural feature of the Mezquita are the double horseshoe arches, made of jasper, onyx, marble, and granite. There are 856 columns in the church and they seem to be a sea of arches and columns to the visitor.

2. Alcazar de los Reyes Cristianos - Has beautiful gardens.

3. Palacio de Viana - The palace has important artwork and there are 12 different patios, all beautiful.

Good restaurants near the Mezquita:

1. Casa Pepe de la Juderia (Calle Romero, 3; Tel: 957-200-744).

2. El Caballo Rojo (Calle del Cardenal Herrero, 28; Tel: 957-475-375).

Shopping streets are the area around the Mezquita, Calle Jose Cruz Conde, Ronda de los Tejares, Conde de Gondomar and Avenida de Gran Capitan.

Dress code for churches: Shorts or bare shoulders are not allowed for either women or men. The Mezquita is a Catholic church.

Hi Just came back from Cordoba and asked the same questions! There is some discussion in Cordoba as there is a religious holiday so they are not sure of the dates yet. You can buy tickets at some of the gardens. There is a sign outside on the wall telling you this. Keep in touch as i want to go next May as well. The patios last week looked very tired!

Yes, I just wrote to the Cordoba tourist office with the same inquiry and received the following reply:

"We don't know yet the date Patios Festival 2019. We are choosing to be decided in meeting with the town hall."

Would very much appreciate if one of the local experts could post an update here once the dates are finalized.

5. Re: Cordoba pation festival 2019.

Hi all,

As I plan to spend no more than one week to 10 days in Cordoba at the festival and my partner and I adore flamenco, should we start our holidays on the last Sunday of April, when the May Crosses Festival and the Battle of the Flowers begin, or later, to be sure to see some flamenco?

Are there flamenco performances from the beginning of the patio festival or only in the later stages?

And does anyone have any idea when the program is likely to be released?

(I don't want us to go early and to then leave wishing we were there for the later part of the festival)

When would be the most impressive to to visit and would there be enough to see if we went for 10 days rather than a week? If so, which period would you recommend

Any advice would be much appreciated

Thanks in anticipation
