Picasso, the most relevant Spanish artist worldwide, was born in Malaga on the 25th of October 1881, so to commemorate the 140th anniversary of his birth today Hotel Angela recommends you visit his Birth House and the Picasso Museum, both in Malaga city centre.
The access to Malaga from our hotel in public transport is great as you can get there by train, taking it in Los Boliches Train Station.
Picasso’s Birth House is located in 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 regular entry price is around 3 euros… well worth it!!
On the other hand, the Picasso Museum is in the Buenavista Palace, a building from the 16th century in Calle San Agustín, right in the centre of the city. It holds a permanent collection as well as some temporary exhibitions. The Museum opens daily, and its regular price is around 9 euros though the entrance is free every Sunday from 2 hours before its closing time.
Hotel Angela encourages you to discover a new much more cultural side of Malaga that most of you might not know and that will certainly impress you… Enjoy the visit!!
