Famous Drawings at El Centro del Carmen

Van Gogh: Cabeza de
una Campesina

Two centuries of hand-drawn sketches by some of the world’s most famous artists have just gone on display at the Centro del Carmen — the beautiful museum, found in the center of the ancient city.

The works of masters like Picasso, Dalí, Goya, as well as non-Spanish artists like Klimt, Matisse and Julian Freud are highlighted in the exhibition, which has also toured Dallas, Texas and Madrid.

The exhibition lasts until the 29th of March, so there’s plenty of time to get there. El Centro de Carmen is worth a visit all by itself … a former convent from the 13th century, featuring a lovely courtyard, the Museum is a great place to spend a few afternoon hours, even if you’re not interested in art. Plus, entrance is always free!
