The Picasso Museum of Málaga is the place where we can find the most substantial amount of pictures of the great artist in his native town, and although the most well-known of them are not exhibited in Málaga, as they are being presented in more famous Museums around the world, we can see how his painting developed from the early years to the end.
In addition to the permanent exhibition there is a room with temporary exhibitions, which during the summer of 2012 presented European advertising posters from the early 20th century.
In the basement of the museum we can see remains of the antique Visigoth palace on which the museum building was constructed. Don´t miss the visit to the Pablo Picasso Museum if you spend an afternoon in Málaga.
In the palace of Buenavista in Calle San Agustín in Málaga, you will find a representative range of examples of paintings and ceramics created by Pablo Picasso in his different stages as brilliant painter and artist. The museum is directed by a foundation that bears the title of the aforementioned museum.
Passing through the door of the Picasso Museum means entering a state where time disappears. Experiencing the tranquility the compound inspires, contemplating the work of our genius, walking through those halls, those are pleasures right within the reach of the citizens of Málaga.
