Palacio de Viana : Michelin's recommendations
This palace was successively extended between the 14C and the 19C, which gives you an idea of the changes in civil architecture in Cordoba in this period You will be at the heart of a unique and surprising group of buildings on an area of about 6,500 m2! On Don Gome square, the way in to the palace is through a large doorway in a corner made up of two registries: one bears a lintel decorated with a broken frontispiece and a balcony flanked by two warriors bearing the arms of Argote and Figueroa. The arms of Saaverda crown the balcony. Inside, notice the attractive 16C main staircase in the Renaissance style, the magnificent Mudejar craft worked ceiling from the same period and the furniture in perfect keeping with it all.. Notice also the craft worked ceilings in the private family dining room (Renaissance, 16C) in the main living room (Mudejar era) as well as in the personal office of the Marquis. Cordoba owes its reputation to its patios... in this palace there are twelve marvellous patios perfectly illustrating this tradition. Here they are all different but, like a garden, they give an impression of irresistible charm and grace. As for the collections, the ground floor has porcelains from various sources (17C-20C.) and some harquebusiers and on the upper floor, you will particularly admire 236 tiled pieces (13C-19C), the most wonderful series of embossed Cordovan leathers (15C-19C) and some tapestries, some of which were made in the style of Goya cartoons Not forgetting the library which brings together more than 7 000 volumes (16C-19C)!
