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 the 27th 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 Centre of the city, with the dramatic backdrop of the Alcazaba Fortress and Gibralfaro Castle close by. 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 we'll move on to The Picasso Museum, and finish at Plaza Merced.
