Full description
The people of Malaga are proud of the fact that Picasso was born here and it was a big day when the King and Queen of Spain inaugurated the Museo Picasso (Picasso Museum) on 27 October 2003. 

On that first day alone, almost 2,000 people visited the museum, which is housed in the Palacio de Buenavista. You will find it right in the heart of the historic center of the city with the dramatic backdrop of the Alcazaba Fortress and Gibralfaro Castle closeby. Literally two minutes walking distance from Malaga Cathedral, this magnificent old building has been painstakingly restored to befit the importance of the works of the great artist.

This tour will start in the Plaza Merced in front of the Casa Natal (Birthplace of Picasso), which has been open to the public since 1988. Then, you'll move on to the Picasso Museum and finish at Plaza Merced.

Picasso & Malaga - Just Brilliant

We were met by our guide Monica beside the Statue of Piso in Place de a Mercead and then taken on a journey at our own pace thru the life of Picasso both at his early home and the Picasso Museum established by his family. After this the rest of the time was spent seeing some of Malagas hidden gems, among themEl Pimpa and a small church that from the outside appeared very plain but inside was spectacular. A great tour and well worth the Euros spent

Genau, interessante und informative Führung über Picasso und sein Life

Als erstes haben wir das ehemalige Wohnhaus von Picasso mit integriert Museum angeschaut, was schon mal einen ersten Eindruck von Picasso und sein Leben in Málaga vermittelt hat. Dabei sind sehr interessante und private Ausstellungsstücke zu betrachten. Der Weg vom Wohnhaus zum Museum führt kurz durch die Altstadt, wobei unsere Reiseleiterin immer wieder detailreiche Erklärungen gab. Das Museum selber zeigt viele unterschiedliche Zeiten und Stile von Picassos Zeit als Künstler. Dabei hat unsere Reiseleiterin nicht einfach nur die Gemälde und die mögliche Interpretation erklärt, sondern hat uns nach unsere eigenen Meinung und Interpretationen gefragt. Zusätzlich hat sie uns aber viele Details zu Picassos Privatleben und künstlicher Eigenheiten erklärte, wodurch die Gründe und die Art und Weise der Darstellung nachvollziehbar gemacht worden ist. Im Anschluss wurden wir eine 1h durch Altstadt geführt, wobei wir auch Orten sahen, welche nicht bei den typischen Touren dabei sind.
