Hello friends and colleagues, today I present this beautiful vestibule, of the house of the association Friends of the courts of San Basilio de Cordoba. It is the entrance to a courtyard Cordovan you have seen in some of my photos, a composition characteristic of the Andalusian culture of this land, hope you like it, then some letters about the culture of the courtyards.
Inside a house can not be expected to have no yard. The collection is so extensive patios ranging from the courtyard of the Mosque-Cathedral to tiny courtyards. The boundaries of the designated pen mark, scooter or patio lights, garden, park or garden.
The topology, ranging from yards square with arcades on two levels and four sides, with arches in three, two and one side. This variety of galleries combined with arcades, balconies, balustrades, with upper galleries without upper galleries, etc.. Patios with no galleries or simply limited by walls.
Moreover floors are earthen, cobblestone, brick or marble ensolados. They come with sources or well, with trees and shrubs, etc..
Most patios are pens or tenements, other public buildings are courtyards, palaces and convents, all these yards are at the center of the house.
Many large houses belonging to the local aristocracy left vacant when its inhabitants were transferred to the Court. Some become occupied and rental housing. It also houses medium are subdivided as tenements, built in them new access stairs to upper parts or blinding holes and galleries to turn them into rooms, or to be occupied by several families. The origin is the need for housing that is created with the mass migration of peoples and the countryside to the city. Such is the need for affordable housing that promotes the construction of a building type like the old inn, which is called the neighbors house or yard, pen or house lot, which house many families and Breakfast.
This type of housing usually has an elongated central courtyard where we find common laundries, kitchens and toilets general. Its occupants, rural precedents, landscaping public spaces these particular pots each neighbor cares and exhibits, thus securing quartering soften the character of this type of patio.
Life in a neighboring yard moved in parameters ideological, social and economic factors that differed markedly from the daily pass other architectural spaces.
In these homes we find the so-called "private space" room or rooms, reserved to the intimate life of the family. On the other hand we find the "common spaces" and "sharing" patio, laundry, pool, galleries, etc.. which are used as an extension of the houses, creating significant social spaces, where was what we called "community service".
We can also find the "semi-communal spaces" as the court would parcels that were in front of the houses. These spaces are used not only to sit and chat, but also to place the furniture that will not fit in the rooms they occupy.
The courtyard is an indispensable element of the quality of life that there has. Life in a tenement has an introverted character, is inland, avoiding where possible contagion and outside contacts. The house is not facing the street, looks at herself, her patio.
Therefore, the courtyard of the apartment building was transformed into a large living room, where family life was great transparency, becoming these large houses of Cordoba in families belonging to the house before the neighborhood, belonged Bataneros to corral, to the house of the Bells, to the many, to the Lagunilla Paso ..., giving a curious division between "them" meaning outsiders and "us" from within .
The courtyard, was the core that brought together all the pieces, received most of the common services and became the space of community life, centralizing internal communication, and who organized the set of all dependencies.
All strengths and values found in yards, such as solidarity, tolerance, mutual aid, sharing the suffering .... are not made as per the last generation born in the yards, and you want to quit from there to live a life marked by more individualistic modern comfort and new media. Emphasized and generational conflict, with two divergent discourses and facing each other: a community life where you put the emphasis on solidarity against a more atomized, individualistic, autonomous, where the emphasis is on a theoretical independence.
The organization of life around housework became slower, more laborious, since the lack of facilities required to overcome daily. The grooming was laborious, clean the yard and water the pots were considered heavy duty. In the courtyard looked loaded any action by the heaviness of the discomfort, poverty.
Daily life progressed similarly in almost every yard, observed over successive frames of the day that were developed in the different rooms of the houses, in which the main role is played by women.
From winter to summer these mutations experienced significant house during the cold months, the family business was focused more on the inside of their rooms. As the temperature increases the rate of families going to be located during the day in the yard, as this becomes an element of climate regulation, due to its content of the natural vegetation and soil respiration watered create an environment favors humid air streams constituting a useful system to mitigate thermal rigors Cordovan summer.
Was time to sit on the patio in the cool of the plants and soil irrigated. Shortly before Easter is encalaba tidied the yard and flowers.
Possible tensions between neighbors emerged, almost always, by the volume of the radio, as well as games and fights between children, which occasionally broke a vase. At one time it was time to take the laundries and kitchens. However, the courts always had, a common spirit for the good and the bad.
In these houses was a peculiar relationship that, in some way, involved both obligations and rights for each of the neighbors of the court in mutual reciprocity, was an almost familiar. Relations were particularly intensified, not only in the social, sharing many family celebrations, but also to intervene in multiple issues of a material nature. They all participated in a feeling of solidarity, which was one of the fundamental values of life in neighborhood.
These tenements are held each and every one of the events and rites of passage in the life cycle, such as baptisms and weddings otorgos.
In 1933 the City Council created the contest courtyards, an event that Mayor Antonio Cruz Conde gave new impetus after 1956.
It is curious that the classes are popular, elderly mostly those maintaining the courtyard houses of Córdoba.

el sentido estético y la capacidad de decoración de los andaluces son grandiosos, no hay más que ver cómo han ornamentado este vestíbulo llenándolo de maceteros con plantas y flores, y dando un colorido fantástico a este pequeño espacio.
Y tu foto ha recogido toda esta belleza en una composición potente gráficamente, con una luz muy buena y unos vivos colores.
Excelente trabajo, amigo mío.
