We came across this museum accidentally and had not heard of the artist before we liked some of his work we saw nearby and so decided to take a look. A nice small museum that did not overwhelm with the volume of paintings on display.

Loved this museum, but I knew nothing of Julio Romero de Torres. After viewing his artwork I am a fan. It was a small but well laid out. When you visit the Museo de Belles Artes, make sure you walk across the courtyard and buy a separate ticket for this museum. I actually enjoyed it more than the Belles artes.

A right-sized museum and very engaging, even for casual art-lovers. We'd never heard of this artist, but enjoyed his work immensely.

Although small, this museum is well worth the effort to find and pay the 4euro entrance fee. The upper floor contains the real gems including La Chiquita Piconera taking pride of place. Unlike big galleries around the world, one is able to get right up to the pieces to contemplate them without hordes of people jostling for position. A word... More

This small museum is in the Plaza del Potro, which also has a plaque in honor of Miguel de Cervantes. Julio Romero de Torres painted beautiful Andalusian women whose eyes captivate the viewer. Although you can buy a postcard of his most famous paintings, seeing the collection is worth the visit.

Small but a place worth visiting. A real part of Cordoba culture de Torres paintings open you to the whole southern Spain flamenco and religious atmosphere.
