The city of Malaga, with its rich history spanning more than two thousand years since its foundation by the Phoenicians, boasts an important cultural infrastructure and rich artistic heritage. The archaeological remains and monuments from the Phoenician, Roman, Arabic and Christian eras make the historic center of the city an "open museum". Malaga is now one of Spain's hottest cultural, gastronomic and leisure destinations.

In Malaga, nearly everything is within walking distance in or around the “Centro Antiguo”. Wherever you look, you are reminded of the city’s rich heritage. Malaga’s most famous inhabitant, Pablo Picasso, was born at Plaza de la Merced in 1881. Picasso’s life and work is still present in most places and the citizens of Malaga are proud of their son. The opening of the Museo Picasso in 2003 was a hit and has made the city flourish culturally. Next to the museum, the visitor can find both the Roman theatre, an Arab castle and, not far away, is the bull fighting ring.

Museo Picasso

This beautiful museum from the 16th-century Buenavista Palace is a must for all visitors to Malaga. Thanks to the grandmaster’s daughter-in-law, Christine, and grandchild Bernard, the museum boasts a collection of nearly 200 works of art. Just a stone’s throw away, at Plaza de la Merced, the house where Picasso was born, is also open to the public.

Address: Palacio de Buenavista San Agustín, 8
