Malaga, the city of Picasso
Picasso Museum in Malaga
A trip to Malaga offers the chance to enjoy two genuine art treasures unavailable anywhere else in the world: the Foundation-Birthplace Museum dedicated to the universal painter Pablo Ruiz Picasso; and the Picasso Museum in Malaga, located in the beautiful Buenavista Palace, with over 150 works which will take you on a journey through the evolution of this artistic genius.
You will experience the privilege of standing before paintings which have never previously been on display, and of seeing ceramics belonging to Picasso himself, and works where the artist represented Miró or Bacon.
What’s more, as you walk around the streets of Malaga, you will come across some of Picasso’s favourite boyhood haunts: the Plaza de la Merced square (where you can still see one of the symbols of his work – the doves– strutting around), the Church of Santiago (where he was baptised), and the la Malagueta bullring, where he used to go with his father, and which had such an influence on his bullfight paintings. A very special city which will help you understand this creative spirit better than ever.
