Overview

Created by Real Order in 1844, Museum of Fine Arts, Cordoba went over through differnt city buildings until 1862. On that date Rafael Romero Barros came to work like curator-restorator and the Museum finally established in it actual place, the disentailed Hospital of Charity at Plaza of Potro. This building was built in late XVth century,being alterated in XVIth and XVIIIth centuries. The last alteration was in XXth century, under the direction of Enrique Romero de Torres, son and successor of Romero Barros. From 1984, Junta de Andalucia, the regional goverment, manage the Museum of Fine Arts. From that time, the Museum shows a selection of masterworks from its collection. Through its rooms is represented the Cordobesian Art from XVth to XXI centuries, with canvas, sculptures and mural. The room I shows temporary exhibitions with drawings and prints of Museum collection.

This museum is housed in the former Hospital of Charity and has an excellent collection of Spanish paintings from the 15th to the 19th centuries. Worth seeking out.

Much religious art, as you would expect, but also some landscapes and some portraits, so something for everyone.

This was quite difficult to find with poor signage on the way and the museum itself was quite incognito! Paintings were well displayed in chronological order. Good size and number of exhibits.

Enjoyed some of the art pieces and the museum provided a breath of cool air from the midday sun. Was free entry, so can't complain re: the pricing, although would be less inclined to enter if it was more than a couple euros.
