This little museum is at the east side of Plaza del Potro, near the Mezquita. Romero de Torres was known for his portraits of gypsies. My favorite was "naranjas y limones" - oranges and lemons

It is always a delight to visit a museum that houses the work of a single artist. And this artist is a one-off. The museum is in what was his house and the house is amazing, as is the delightful courtyard and fountain in front of it.

We have visited this garden and it's adjoining museum four times. However in the months of late May, June, July and August I would avoid it as the heat in Cordoba is extreme to say the least. But if you pick the right climate,the gardens are to be enjoyed by sitting under the numerous trees and listening to the water... More

A must see exhibition whilst in Cordoba. The Museum houses some of the most unique work of Romero de Torres. Entry is 4.50 euro but well worth the effort. His profound love for Cordoba and the Andalusian Flamenco is evident in his work.

Interesting art collection and worth a visit if time allows. They range according to time period and do truly give a visual account of the spirit of Cordoba which includes work in relation to flamenco

The building is small and beautiful - just as the number of paintings were few but gorgeous!. The theme was flamenco and the faces/expressions were extremely well captured! Definitely worth seeing!
