Entry is 4.5 euros unless you are over 65. You are able to visit two floors with various galleries of the Córdoba painter. The paintings have write-ups in both Spanish and English. We found the paintings interesting and were there for about 45 minutes.

We had been to the Museo Bellas Artes and this museum is across the courtyard. Entry was free for us as EU citizens. Some of the posters Julio did are very good and are known images . The occasional painting stands out especially the famous one of the girl stirring a dish.

We really enjoyed this small museum which provides a good overview of Romero's work. Almost every painting is of women. Several provide insight into aspects of Andalusian culture; flamenco, religion, costume, etc. Unfortunately the lighting is not well done and the collection rather small, but well worth the visit.

Few tourists around, unique painter and place, located in the Plaza del Potro, in a beatiful zone of Cordoba. Well known because of his nude painting caled "Naranjas y Limones" ("Oranges and lemons").

Saw some of the paintings of Julio Romero de Torres depicted on postcards and fridge magnets on sale in a number of the tacky touristy shops in the old part of Cordoba and decided to visit the museum, a few minutes walk from the Mosque/Cathedral. What a delight! The building is haunting as are the paintings with beautiful ordinary women... More

Not a large exhibition of work but still worth seeing. An interesting range of work displayed over two floors, giving a great insight into the life and work of the artist.

In this museum you will find allot of Julio Romero´s paintings, it is not great in size but a nice place to be included in your visit, not only for what you see on the inside, but also for the nice “Patio” and especially for the painted facades of the museum, very nice and something you would not expect when...

Next door to the austere Museo de Bellas Artes in Cordoba is a gallery devoted to the work of Julio Romero de Torres, an early 20th century local artist who is sometimes known as "the king of kitsch". The sober lighting and darkly decorated rooms give the impression of a bordello, which is not entirely inappropriate given many of the... More

We were staying in the building right in front of the museum, so we decided to visit, one morning. I love the artist's work, there was a lot of information about his career, how he saw life and death, what inspired him. Very interesting! BUT the lighting is terrible. It reflects off the oil paintings and you have to stand... More

The museum unfortunately doesn't allow photography but the paintings are wonderful. It is great to see some of the painters equipment as well. The faces are particularly well painted with the character of the individuals coming through the paint.
