Nearby your guide will help you navigate charming maze-like tiny winding streets of the old town of Córdoba. Master artist Julio Romero Torres is from Córdoba and there is a fine museum here full of his dramatic regional paintings often of beautiful women. Maybe that is how he is said to have influenced Picasso, who was born 3 hours south on the Mediterranean coast in Málaga. They met through Picasso’s father apparently.
