The Goya Museum-Ibercaja Collection was opened in 1979 in the former house of Jerónimo Cósida – one of the most beautiful examples of Renaissance civil architecture in Zaragoza. It is among the most important collections of Goya’s work in Aragón. The pieces on display in the permanent collection range from the 15th century to the 1970s. The first floor contains paintings and sculptures from the 15th to the 18th centuries. The second floor is dedicated exclusively to the great Aragonese painter: The GOYA GALLERY offers paintings by Goya and some of the most important painters of his age. The ENGRAVINGS GALLERY displays the complete series produced by Goya between 1778 and 1825. The third floor presents Goya’s legacy, pieces that represent the impact of the painter’s work on Spanish and Aragonese artists of the 19th and 20th centuries.

There are also guided tours, temporary exhibitions and an extensive programme of cultural and educational activities.

The building which houses the Goya Museum originally belonged to Jerónimo Cósida, a member of the lesser nobility. It was built between 1535 and 1536 by Morisco master house building Juan de Lanuza. Highlights include the square courtyard with banded columns crowned by lovely capitals. It is decorated with grotesques and plaster medallions on the sills, with a varied iconographic programme related to the family of the Roman emperor Augustus.
