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.

Beautiful, small museum with a great collection of his works depicting his passion for the culture and women of Cordoba. Entrance is via a beautiful patio.

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

A small art gallery focused on one painter Julio Romero de Torres. His most famous painting is called "oranges and lemons".

Julio learned art from his father, who founded and directed the... More

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!

We were most pleased to have visited this museum, knowing nothing about the artist. His bold colours and strong figures did not take away from the gentleness and tenderness of his subjects and themes.

This is worth looking at if you are in the área but is not that amazing. Very Spanish style religeous paintings levened by some attractive nudes.
