The city of Picasso

Málaga is part of Picasso, and Picasso is part of Málaga. We encourage you to discover the city through the life and work of the artist.

Pablo Ruiz Picasso was born and lived part of his childhood in Malaga. He always felt connected to this city, and his roots are reflected in many of his works.

Very close to Hotel Molina Lario, a nine-minute walk away, is the Picasso Birthplace Museum, which is the same house where the painter was born. There you can see childhood and family memories, as well as collections specializing in his graphic work, drawing, and ceramics. Cultural activities are also organized there.

Picasso wanted his work to be present in his hometown, which is why the Picasso Museum Malaga was founded in the Buenavista Palace, also very close to the hotel, a five-minute walk away. It was in 2003, thanks to 233 pieces donated by Christine and Bernard Ruiz-Picasso, daughter-in-law and grandson of the artist. The permanent collection covers eight decades of his work, eighty years of an icon of modern art.

In 2003, the Picasso Museum Malaga celebrates its 20th anniversary coinciding with the 50th anniversary of Picasso's death and pays tribute to him with exhibitions, conferences, workshops, and special publications in collaboration with other cultural and social entities, such as the Pompidou Center, libraries, or neighborhood associations. This year, Picasso will be especially present in the cultural life of the city, so... enjoy it!
