Museo Palacio Ferreyra, Cordoba

Housed in the stately Ferreyra Palace, Museo Palacio Ferreyra is worth a visit to see both the architecture and the exhibits held within. The building, a Beaux-arts mansion designed by architect Ernest Sanson from France, was built between 1912 and 1916 as a private residence for a wealthy local doctor, Dr. Ferreyra. In 2005, the government bought the mansion and began renovations to create the museum. Across 12 exhibit halls, the museum displays more than 500 works of art, including pieces by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Francisco Goya, and Gustave Courbet. While admiring the artwork, also take time to appreciate the fine mosaic floors of the palace as you stroll along. You may also find described under the English name Evita Fine Arts Museum.

  • The former Palacio of the Ferreyra family, built in the early twentieth century is a perfect example of Europeanizing architecture built under European canons and with imported materials as was customary at the time. After an expropriation that raised some doubts in 2007 opened its doors as A Museum, complementing the artistic heritage of the Province of Córdoba, which is exhibited in another nearby Museum such as the Emilio Caraffa MEC. The works of adaptation to this new function also provoked much criticism for the criteria of intervention in heritage.

  • The building is incredible and the artwork just beautiful. Staff were welcoming too. Wednesdays are free, but even when not the admission is very reasonable. Worth a visit if you enjoy alternative art...  more »
