#1 Picasso Museum

Pablo Ruiz Picasso was born in Málaga and the people of Málaga are very proud of that. He was the founder of Cubism and he lead a very adventurous life. The Picasso Museum reveals the evolution of his painting career. Inside you can find over 280 pieces of art including sketches, paintings and sculptures. The museum is located very close to the house where Picasso was born. If you want to learn about his childhood and personal life, you can visit the Picasso Foundation Museum as well. The whole area is full of picturesque streets, traditional restaurants, shops and wineries. It is a perfect place to continue your journey after the visit, and to experience the neighborhood of Pablo Picasso. We recommend Cortijo de Pepe – an emblematic restaurant offering traditional Andalusian cuisine.

Málaga equals Picasso. It is very difficult to visit Málaga and overlook the legacy he left behind. But how much did you really get to know about him? Let us tell you a few facts you may have not known. As he said himself:

The quality of an artist depends on the past he carries. – Pablo Ruiz Picasso

The birth of Picasso was very complicated. The vital signs were gone shortly after he was brought to life. Even the midwife lost all hope and left him for dead. She left him on a table and went to attend to the mother. The obstetrician, who was Picasso’s uncle, lit a cigarette in distress. The smoke reached the face of the newborn and made him start crying. Pablo Ruiz Picasso was born.
