Museo De Bellas Artes De Córdoba

The Museo de Bellas Artes de Córdoba is situated in the Plaza del Potro in the 15th century Hospital de la Caridad building, a space it shares with the Museo Julio Romero de Torres.

The Museum was officially created by Royal Decree in 1844 and until 1916 shared a building with the local Museo Arqueológico. In 1978 it was integrated into the Nacional Board of Museums of the Ministry of Cultura and has been, since 1984, a state museum dependent on the Comunidad Autónoma de Andalucía’s Ministry of Culture.
