Once the former residence of the Marquis of Viana, Palacio de Viana contains a vast collection of tiles, furniture, tapestries, porcelain, paintings, muskets, and a 7,000-volume library. With its ornate Mannerist facade, the 16th-century building stands as an architectural gem. After viewing the museum’s collection, stroll through the gardens and beautiful patios, which have been added over time by successive occupants of the palace.

Each played a function. The visit to the palace I recommend doing it. It is guided and in small groups. I went and started at half an hour and I was able to do it. I recommend booking online. Inside the palace there are many furniture, art objects, very nice and interesting paintings and a beautiful crockery.

It treasures a great diversity of courtyards and gardens of special charm that uniquely expresses the quintessence of the popular Cordoba courtyards.
One of the loveliest palaces I have been. Will take you around 40m to walk the place at lesuire. Remember to stop and read the info signboard on each garden to understand the significance. Go in the morning if possible when it's not hot. Around 30m walk from the grand mosque.
Beautiful gardens (they say 12 but there are really 13 if you count the front courtyard), even in February. The entrance fee is also only 5 euros so there's no reason to miss this place if you're in Cordoba. It seems a little far from everything else but our walk was only 20 minutes from the Mezquita.
