Cordova is such a compact city that we got through our itinerary, which was rather large way faster than we thought. So, we added this and are glad that we that we did. It’s a small museum and the English subtitles are not great, but if you log onto their website, it gives you an audio for each painting, which is fantastic.

Small scale high quality museum. If you are a European citizen entry is free by showing your passport or other credentials proving ID. Not large but a nice walk thorough giving you an understanding of the history and artist of the region.

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 you see it on the street side. The building in which is the museum is located, was the former “Hospital de la Caridad”.

Had intended to visit fine art museum but turned right not left and found myself in the museum Julio Romero de Torres. The very helpful man behind the desk asked if I was over 70 and on production of passport told me admission was free. Would have happily paid the 4 euro 50 entrance fee for such an exquisite collection of paintings. Most of the subjects were female and portrayed with much affection. The most fascinating thing was the eyes of the subjects, so lifelike and expressive. This is a small museum but one not to be missed. It is housed in mansion in a small courtyard.

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 paintings on the walls.

Among several salacious interpretations of Bible scenes and classical themes, one of the most bizarre paintings depicts a pulchritudinous semi-naked woman being held solicitously by nuns, in a pose reminiscent of Jesus being taken down off the cross.

My feminist wife was either sniggering or mildly outraged at some of the gratuitous nudity, like the painting "Naranjas y Limones" which features another voluptuous young woman, this time clutching ripe oranges under her naked breasts - which, presumably, are the lemons.

Great fun, in the way that Tretchikoff is fun - but not to be taken too seriously.

This museum is tucked away as you exit the old Jewish quarter of Cordoba. One wouldn't realise that the building was a museum until one got to its doors. Inside the display of bull fighting memorablia and audio visual displays explaing the fascination with bull fighting makes the visit worth while.

I knew little about de Torres except he’d featured in a TV show. Small enough not to be overwhelming, but plenty of paintings and very interesting and moving.

It was relaxing to view the paintings on display and they gave an insight into Cordoba.When we visited the Mezquita there were references to this artist and his family.It all helps to create a feeling of connection to the yesterdays.
I am not usually fond of portraits and still life and even though this was not the only types of art I found the museum excellent.
It was quiet and so it was possible to use the space in the rooms to view the paintings from different angles.
When I return to Cordoba I will visit again.The narrative with the paintings creates an image of life in his era.Time well spent

I loved visiting this museum! My friend was already familiar With the artist but he was New to me. Lovely paintings that you can study for their symbolism endlessly!
Kind staff too :) I recommend taking time to get to know this local artist, though you have probably seen his work already on the sherry bottles before.
