Picasso, the most relevant Spanish artist worldwide, was born in Malaga on the 25th of October 1881, so in order to commemorate his birth this week Hotel Florida Spa recommends you to visit his Birth House and the Picasso Museum, both in Malaga city centre.
The access to Málaga from Fuengirola in public transport is really good as you can get there by train, taking it in Fuengirola train station.
Picasso’s Birth House is located in the number 15 of Plaza de la Merced so it is easy accessible if walking. In this same square, on a bench near the entrance door of the building, there is a bronze statue of Picasso with which you can get photographed. Inside the house there is an exhibition of his paintings and some pottery works together with some personal items from the famous painter.
The Birth House is open daily and the entrance price is only 1 euro… it is totally worth it!!
On the other hand, the Picasso Museum is located in the Buenavista Palace, a building from the 16th century in calle San Agustín, right in the city centre of Malaga. It holds a permanent collection as well as some temporary exhibitions. The museum also opens daily and next Saturday the 27th of October due to its 9th anniversary the entrance will be free. The entrance is also free the last Sunday of each month after 3:00P.M, so now that you know it you should make the most of it, visit this amazing museum and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere that only the capital of Costa del Sol can provide.
Here in Hotel Florida Spa we encourage you to discover a new much more cultural side of Malaga that most of you might not know and that will certainly impress you…we eagerly expect your comments on Facebook. Enjoy the visit!!
