Los Patios

11 05 2010

The Patio contest is nearly 100 years old. Since the weather gets so hot and dry it is in Córdoba, many houses have central patios filled with plants and water features forming makes a cool haven. Along with the narrow streets, the Patios ar the result of Arabic influence. But the decoration of these patios have taken on a life of their own. Most of the year you can’t see in behind the heavy gates and high walls – but for a couple of weeks in May, they fling open the gates and you can take a wonder through. These are a few photos I took – and some better ones from Fiona and Tiffany (cheers girls! Thanks for joining me in the fun!)
