The Picasso Museum in Malaga

Malaga is often overlooked as a place to visit and explore. Most visitors hurry out of the airport and are straight on the motorway leaving Malaga behind on their way to the holiday resorts on the westside of Malaga. This is without discussion a BIG mistake.

Malaga is a vibrant metropolis located on the beautiful coast of Andalusia in southern Spain. It's also Pablo Picasso's birthplace.

The Picasso Museum is a must when visiting Malaga. Take an enjoyable stroll through the picturesque narrow streets of old Malaga, on your way to San Augustín number 8 - where you will find "Museo Picasso Malaga". The main building which houses the permanent exhibition, is a national monument. A beautiful example of 16th century Andalusian architecture, located in the city's old quarter. The Buena Vista Palace was built between 1516 and 1542 by Diego de Cazalla.

Picasso (1881-1973) was one of the most significant artists of the 20th century and I doubt that he need any long-winded introduction.

There is so much to see in Malaga. On Plaza de Mercedes you will find the birthplace of Picasso and in the same area as the Picasso Museum is the stunning Cathedral, well worth a visit.

El Pimpi Bar

After indulging yourself in the paintings of Picasso don’t miss out on the Bodega Bar El Pimpi right behind the Museum. An old fashioned atmospheric bar decorated with old posters, hanging plants and old wine barrels signed by celebrities. El Pimpi can also be accessed from Calle Granada. The bar has different rooms and patios and welcomes both smokers and non smokers.

Famous for its sweet wine, celebrity guests like Antonio Banderas and its tasty tapas - El Pimpi makes your lunch break in the center of Malaga an atmospheric event in a relaxed, authentic Andalusian Interior.

Evenings and the high season can be a crowded experience, but spring and autumn afternoons are usually more quiet. The prices are very reasonable.

Take your time. Enjoy the wine, the olives, the tapas and the fresh bread - Andalusian style in Picasso's Malaga. You are not in a hurry. There is always manana and El Pimpi doesn't close until 2.30 in the morning.
