Places where the festival takes place

The extraordinary and beautiful city of Cordoba and the villages Puente GenilCabra and Dos Torres, has many venues full of history and legend where both attendees and guests will enjoy the several activities offered by the Festival. Here, you will find a brief description of some of the venues in which the Festival’s events will take place.

Teatro Góngora
The film theatre Gongora, also known as simply Gongora Theater, although it never had that name, is a theater of Cordoba (Spain) built between 1929 and 1932 and designed by Madrid architect Luis Gutierrez Soto. Built on the site of the former Convent of Jesus Mary occupies 950 square meters and is located in Jesus Maria Street. It is one of the few examples left by the architectural rationalism in Cordoba, combining Mediterranean appearance in his front, with pergolas and middle-point arches, with a modernist and sober interior and a particularly large terrace where summer movies were projected.
Teatro la Axerquía
This wonderful venue was built in 1969 according to a draft submitted by the municipal architect José Rebollo, who sought to capture the idea of a theater-garden adapted to the existing environment. In order to achieve this, they start building from the ground topography and the mass of vegetation. The result can not be more dramatic: a completely open air amphitheater surrounded by a garden, built on the slope of La Colina de los Quemados and the city of Cordoba on the background. An unforgettable place to host one of the most important concerts of the Festival.
Palacio de Viana
The Palace-Museum of Viana is a monument of Cordoba and in 1981 was recognized by royal decree as “National Historical Monument and Artistic Garden.” It is really difficult to put in words the beauty of this building. Its five centuries of history have witnessed additions, alterations and archaeological finds, with the courtyard always present. In fact, the uniqueness of its twelve courtyards has conferred it the title of Museo de los Patios (Museum of the Courtyards). This beautiful building, unique in the world and direct heir of the Roman and Arabic tradition, is an example of the greatness of this year’s Festival.
