Patio de los Naranjos in Cordoba: A Terrace Lunch





Set amid the fragrant orange-scented gardens of the beautiful Patio de los Naranjos in Cordoba's gorgeous Hospes Palacio del Baillo, our lovely terrace table offered a tranquil and inviting oasis to enjoy a bottle of wine and local tapas on a sunny afternoon under an arbour of cascading fruit trees. The sweet smell of roses and orange blossoms in the warm sunshine was an intoxicating balm as the rain clouds made a temporary retreat as we sat and relaxed in the beautiful gardens. Ordering a lovely bottle of Albarino and a few tapas, we settled in for a light lesiurely lunch serenaded by the song of small Cordovan birds.
