Casa de los Tiros Museum - Museum of Popular Traditions and Art
Calle Pavaneras, 19
18009 Granada (Andalusia)
To get to know Granada
The museum is set in the Casa de los Tiros, a 16th-century Renaissance building - special mention should be made of its façade, with icons representing Trojan heroes.
Inaugurated in 1929, here you can see paintings from the 17th-19th centuries, Baroque sculpture from Granada, Fajalauza ceramics, traditional textiles and a collection of 19th century furniture. The collection includes outstanding drawings, watercolours, engravings, lithographs, and a collection of photographs of the city and its monuments. The museum also has a newspaper archive and a library specialising in Granada-related subjects, where visitors will find documents by Baltasar Martínez Durán, Francisco de Paula-Valladar Serrano and Antonio Gallego Burín, amongst others. The most interesting rooms in the museum are the one dedicated to romantic travellers, focusing on the figure of Washington Irving; the industrial arts room; and the one on the world of gypsies.
