Córdoba (also Cordova) is a city in Andalusia, southern Spain, and the capital of the province of Córdoba. Tourism is especially intense in Córdoba during May as during this month the city hosts three very popular festivals; The May Crosses Festival, The Patios Festival and Córdoba's Fair. May Crosses lasts between three or four days in the beginning of the month and consists of crosses, up to 3 meters in height being placed in many squares and streets, decorated with flowers, with a contest being held to choose the most beautiful one.
The Patios Festival is celebrated during the second and third week of the month. Many houses of the historic centre open their private patios to the public and compete in a contest. The Córdoba's Fair takes place at the end of the month and is similar to, if smaller than, the better known Seville Fair.
There are several museums to visit in the city, including, the Archaeological and Ethnological Museum of Córdoba, Julio Romero de Torres Museum, Museum of Fine Arts and the Bullfighting Museum.
