Goya Museum - Ibercaja Collection, Zaragoza

The Goya Museum - Ibercaja Collection, also known as the Museo Camón Aznar, is renowned for its exceptional fine arts collection, which has its roots in the passion and dedication of José Camón Aznar, a prominent local figure. A philosopher, art critic, professor, and avid art collector, Camón Aznar played a pivotal role in assembling this impressive collection.

To provide a fitting home for this valuable collection, the Spanish savings bank Ibercaja acquired a magnificent mansion that once belonged to the nobleman Jerónimo Cósida. The mansion itself is a testament to the architectural splendor of the Renaissance era and is widely regarded as one of the finest examples of civil architecture in Zaragoza. The building features three beautifully designed floors centered around a splendid courtyard, creating an elegant and historical backdrop for the art it houses.

The museum's permanent collection is a treasure trove of art, with a primary focus on paintings from the 15th to the 18th centuries, all thoughtfully displayed on the first floor. However, the true highlight of the Goya Museum - Ibercaja Collection lies in its assortment of works by the legendary Spanish artist, Francisco de Goya. Visitors can admire a selection of Goya's masterpieces, including 14 paintings, a drawing, and a series of engravings.

These works by Goya offer a captivating journey through the artist's career, showcasing his versatility and artistic genius. The themes depicted in these artworks span the spectrum from religious to whimsical, providing a comprehensive view of Goya's mastery.
