Do not miss the Pablo Picasso museum if you spend an afternoon in Malaga. I suggest going with someone ve can explain the curiosities and background of each piece of art. I have uploaded two pictures, one representing the "character of women" and the other hinting at a second person ve seems to embrace a child from behind. It is forbidden to take photos and video inside the museum.
Opened in the May Fair 1785, it is one of the oldest and most beautiful in Spain. It is neoclassical and has an interesting cover of stonework. The seats are arranged over two levels and there are 136 overlapping smooth stone columns with 68 arches. The gable roof is covered with Arabic tiles. It can hold up to 6000 people and has one of the largest arenas in Spain (60 meters in diameter). Underneath the stands you will find the Bullfighting Museum of Ronda. The truth is that it is impressive to step into the arena of the square and make a full turn and imagine the stands full. Very nice, I recommend a visit. You may be interested to visit the bullring in Mijas.
A great museum if you like cars, dedicated to cars through the ages. Here you can see some of Europe's largest engines. If you have a favorite car brand, you're sure to find it here. My favorite is James Bond's ... what's yours? If you pass through Malaga, be sure to stop here!
The Picasso Foundation is located in the painter's birthplace, in the Plaza de la Merced of Malaga. Picasso's parents came from families that move to Malaga in the early nineteenth century. His father was from Cordoba, and his mother from Genova, hence the un-Spanish surname he became famous under. Pablo Ruiz Picasso was born in Malaga on the October 25, 1881. In the year 1891 his family moved to La Coruña, then in 1895 to Barcelona, where he stayed until 1904, the year he moved to Paris. But Picasso never forget about his native Andalucia, and returned to Malaga four times, in the summers of 1895,1896,1987 and winter 1900-1901. The Foundation offers exhibitions, workshops, conferences, etc. The schedule is the same as the museum, from Monday to Sunday.
During our visit to the town of Ronda we sat down to eat in a small little square next to the museum. The museum sign caught our attention and we decided a visit would be interesting. It was. They have everything from pocket watches and fans to navigational instruments, weapons, instruments of torture and archaeological remains. Furthermore, they let you take photos and audio guides are available. Admission is cheap (4 €) and if you go in groups of more than 16 people you get in half-price. In an hour you can see this museum but if you like what you see and the owner is there he will be happy to assist you personally and explain everything. I recommend it.
I love this concept. The store below sells local natural products and is a charming restaurant, and there is a museum above. The menu is also charming. As you will see, the feature is duck, which is fantastic. You have to order it (see photo). It's all accompanied by a cozy ambience and of course, some delicious wines. It's definitely a place to go back to.
Greetings, travelers. We visited the Museum of Sayalonga Morisco, one of the biggest mysteries in the province of Málaga and contributor to the fourth millennium program. We took a guided tour with audiovisual to understand a bit more about the history of the place of which many do not speak. If you like mystery, visit the Moorish Museum Sayalonga.
