Museo Picasso Málaga: Ticket & Audioguide

4. Museo Picasso Málaga: Ticket & Audioguide

The Museo Picasso Málaga was created in response to the artist's desire for his work to be exhibited in the city of his birth in 1881. Its realization is thanks to the combined efforts of the artist´s daughter-in-law and grandson, whose donations provide the body of the art collection, and Junta de Andalucía, who arranged an ambitious project devoted to the artist. Located in the Palacio de Buenavista, declared a National Monument in 1939, the Museo Picasso Málaga opened in the heart of Málaga in 2003. The building boasts a harmonic mix of Renaissance and Mudéjar elements and serene contemporary lines. Phoenician, Roman, and Arabic ruins can be found on the underground floor. This ticket provides access to the permanent collection or the temporary exhibition. The permanent collection contains examples of Picasso's revolutionary innovations. See paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, and graphic work, from his first academic studies to his personal Neoclassical perspective, from the overlapping forms of Cubism to his experiments in ceramics, and from his interpretation of the Old Masters to his last paintings of the 1970s. Purchase a combined ticket and you will also get access to the museum’s temporary exhibitions. The temporary exhibitions change on a regular basis.  Break for a snack in the garden café of the Palacio de Buenavista, a perfect place to end your visit with an appetizer, lunch, or a drink in one of the nicest spots in Málaga.

From Costa del Sol & Malaga: Caminito del Rey Guided Tour

5. From Costa del Sol & Malaga: Caminito del Rey Guided Tour

Begin your day with a pickup and travel to Ardales. Make a stop at the Venta El Cruce, which is a local restaurant with plenty of typical local products and delicacies. Return to the coach and continue until you reach the northern access point of the Caminito del Rey. Walk through a small long tunnel to reach the natural paths that lead to the entrance checkpoint of the gorges. Receive a helmet and listen to the safety instructions. Your guide will join you and explain to you what you will find during the trek and give you many hints about the history of this peculiar construction.  The Gorge, called Desfiladero de los Gaitanes, is a natural pass across the hills that separate the Malaga coastline from the inlands. The River Guadalhorce flows at the bottom of the gorges, after having passed through the reservoirs. El Chorro means the Spurt and your guide will explain why.  El Caminito de Rey, after many year of total abandonment, is now a rebuilt path that stretches between two gorges or canyons and a large valley. It is safe and comfortable to walk as most of the path is flat or downhill. The route goes in one direction downhill from the north to the south. The bus will be waiting at the exit point. Once the group is on board the coach, you will return to the Costa del Sol and be dropped off at your pickup point.

Maria is a passionate and knowledgeable guide who provided good insights about the history of the Roman theatre and Alcazaba. Provided good illustration of what Alcazaba used to look like before it was refurbished. Highly recommended!!

Really great way to see around Malaga and get familiar with the city. Our guide was very informative. We did the 1.5hr tour. We had a 6 year old with us so this was an ideal to do a tour of the city.

Havier was an excellent guide who interacts well with my family and tour mates. Went to a few restaurant to try out the wine and tapas. Wonderful introduction to beautiful town of Malaga.
