Palacio de Viana Overview

Palacio de Viana is one of the most impressive Moorish palaces in Spain, built at the end of the 15th century and still retains its original architectural stylings. The palace is an important place to visit as it gives a fascinating insight into the city's history. The palace features several sumptuous patios, galleries and gardens adorned with colourful tiles, intricate fountains and lush foliage – offering visitors a striking insight into traditional Spanish architecture.

The palace, which was once home to the Marquises of Viana, who came from the powerful Torres family of Córdoba, is considered one of the finest examples of Spanish architecture from the 16th century. A stunning courtyard leads to an impressive main hall with pointed arches supported by columns and wooden coffered ceiling.

The interior decoration of Palacio de Viana is spectacular; adorned with intricate fabrics and period furniture, it reflects Moorish and Renaissance styles, while extraordinary canvases adorn the walls, containing scenes depicting everyday occurrences in the life of Córdoba’s aristocrats.

One can explore several interesting spaces within this royal residence including its private gardens — a peaceful oasis filled with citrus trees — and view two impressive façades decorated by ceramic tiles imitating oriental motifs or heraldic symbols from both Córdoba’s past and present emblematic families. Visitors will also be enchanted by one-of-a-kind decorative pieces such as intricately carved chestnut wood frames and striking gold sculpture work.
