picasso museum


Alex, outside Museo Picasso Málaga

Pablo Picasso was born in Malaga, so it makes sense that a museum dedicated to his work was built there. Although he didn't return to his birthplace since he left (at the age of 19), you can find tributes to the artist all over the city. Located in the Buenavista Palace, the 16th century Renaissance building is apparently very typical of the architecture of the period and it's stunning. Photography wasn't permitted, but you can see photos of it here.

In addition to well over 100 works by Picasso himself, there were plenty of other exhibitions that we spent hours looking at. When we were researching places to visit, some websites suggested that Malaga didn't have a lot to offer. We would disagree and this museum was definitely one of the highlights.

  5. Sounds like a wonderful place to visit. Too bad you can't take photos of the Picasso and other exhibits there. I'm sure it's a great experience to see them up close, though. So, sending some postcards? :)
