On Parque Sarmiento's western corner, opposite Plaza España, is the city's leading visual-art space, the Museo de Bellas Artes Emilio Caraffa. The austere 1916 neoclassical facade has recently been boldly and blockily reworked to better suit the simple white-painted rooms, where you'll find a spry collection of 19th- and 20th-century paintings, engravings, and sculpture. Most of the artists represented are Argentine—including Córdobans Genaro Páez, Emilio Caraffa,
and Fernando Fader.

I visited this museum a couple of weeks ago. There was not much happening here. The first room had an art exhibition of young painters. This was not a permanent exhibition. The second room was a permanent exhibition. The other rooms were closed but I had a peek inside. They had mostly photographs of city founders. The courtyard had artesans who displayed there goods. Maybe I just caught this museum on an off day but there was really not a lot
to see. Entrance was free and I was allowed to take photos.
