    Erotism and beauty

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Julio Romero de Torres Museum: a very beautiful manorial house, where the painter was born in 1874. A good part of his work is exhibited here. His picture deals with female erotism, even the ones with an apparently religious theme. The title of the picture that I chose for this tip is Naranjas y limones (oranges and lemons). Well, one can see the oranges, of course? and the lemons? The answer seems obvious, doesnt it? For sure, he must have painted the most beautiful women in Cordoba? or perhaps he improved them. The building itself is worth a visit. It opens from 10,00 to 14,00 and from 17,00 to 19,00 Monday-Saturday and from 9,30 to 15,30 on Sundays. Admission fee: 3 euros, but it is free on Fridays

Su pintura trata el erotismo femenino, incluso las de tema religioso. El titulo del cuadro que he elegido para acompanhar este consejo es Naranjas y limones. Vale, se pueden ver las naranjas, por supuesto... y los limones? La respuesta parece obvia, verdad? Seguramente, debe de haber pintado a las mujeres mas hermosas de Cordoba? o quiza las mejoraba el mismo. El propio edificio en si mismo merece una visita. Abre de 10,00 a 14,00 y de 17,00 a 19,00 de lunes a sabado y de 9,30 a 15,30 los domingos. La entrada cuesta 3 euros pero es gratuita los viernes.

    This is a picture of a sculpture of Matador Manolete. This Matador was born in Cordoba.

    Courtyard in Romero de Torres Museum

    An elegant square in the north of the city, Posada del Potro, hosts two popular Cordoba museums. The first is the Museum of Fine Arts, with a small collection of pictures by local artists.

    Much more interesting is the Romero de Torres Museum, across the square, which contains a collection by one of Cordoba's best loved artists. Torres is best known for his portraits of women, mostly of Andalucian and gypsy women.

    It houses beautiful paintings reflecting Cordoba’s character, people and daily life. This painter is also famous for a typical spanish song “Julio Romero de Torres pinto a la mujer morena…”
