If you take delight in ancient history, you won’t want to miss this tour. With half a million inhabitants, Malaga is the major coastal city of Andalusia and is a genuinely traditional city of this province. Its gritty individualism remains untouched by tourism and, to a large extent, the passage of time. Many ancient civilizations have left their mark, which you’ll discover in Malaga’s rich archaeological remains and fascinating monuments. On your way to Gibralfaro Castle, pass by the Alcazaba – a historic palace that was built in the 11th century to be the residence of the Arabian Caliphs (kings). It is connected by a steep path to the Gibralfaro Castle – an ancient Moorish fortress which commands breathtaking views of the city and the bay. The Museo Picasso Malaga is run by two foundations created for the purpose of showcasing the works of the master. The Fundación Paul, Christine y Bernard Ruiz-Picasso owns the museum’s collection, whereas the Fundación Museo Picasso de Malaga owns the group of buildings that house it. Together, the two foundations are responsible for the conservation, exhibition, study and diffusion of the art, and that the wishes of the donors are respected. At the museum, you will have time to appreciate all of Picasso's styles and techniques (painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramic and graphic works) along with an exhibition with pieces dating from 1890 to 1973.
Exact tour timing may vary according to granted bookings by the museum. There is a maximum of 25 guests per guide due to museum's restrictions.
