Traditional Cordoba patios on display until January 4

THE world-famous patios of Cordoba have just been unveiled to the public as part of the city’s Christmas celebrations.

Thousands of visitors are expected to take advantage of the opportunity to view the secluded courtyards, which are privately owned and rarely open to the public.

The patios are traditionally decorated with Christmas ornaments, lights and striking red poinsettias, while carols are sung and food samplings take place.

Prizes are awarded to the best patios, some of which date back as far as the 10th century.

The patios are open until January 4.
