Sail the Iberian Peninsula - 2019

The Patio of Flowers Contest Older housing is still occupied - particularly homes built around central patios. A wonderful tourist attraction build around these home is the annual competition among the inhabitants called “The Patios of Flowers Contest”. The Town Council supports the contest by providing funds to retired residents to help them lavishly decorate their patios for tourist visitors. Visitor donations are accepted at the door but no general admission is required. Winners get a bit of prize money to supplement their income. Seems a wonderful way to give retired people a little extra income as well as to help the general economy. We were lucky to visit Cordoba during this competition and were invited into many of the interior gardens to see for ourselves just how beautifully they are decorated and filled with riotous colors and surprising ways to exhibit the plants.
