1,088 Reviews

Picasso’s birthplace is located on the elegant Plaza de la Merced barely 200 yards (180 m) from the awesome Museo Picasso Malaga, which holds over 150 of his artworks. Standing at the end of Calle Alcazabilla, the sweeping square is dominated by an obelisk honoring General Torrijos, an aristocratic revolutionary who fought against French invasion of Spain and was publically executed here for his pains in 1831.

This bourgeois, tree-fringed piazza was once site of Málaga’s main produce market and is today lined with smart, shuttered and balconied townhouses, cafés and top-end restaurants. It lies at the very heart of the city and each night locals gather here to promenade and chat in the tapas bars. The last Sunday of the month sees Málaga’s main craft market held in the square, where local delicacies such as Serrano ham and tortilla are also on sale.

Perhaps surprisingly there is only a rather low-key statue dedicated to the world’s most famous artist in one corner of the square, but Picasso’s house is given over to the Museo Casa Natal (Picasso Birthplace Museum), which has three rooms on the first floor given over to his ceramics and drawings. The five-story mansion is also headquarters to the Fundación Picasso, which holds thousands of paintings, sculptures and drawings by Picasso and his contemporaries.

Go local for a day!

This adventure has 2 of the most important ingredients to make your walk around Malaga an UNFORGETTABLE visit: the experience of local 'malagueñas'; and also officially qualified tour guides. The idea is not to talk about a huge amount of historical facts, nor to treat you as just another tourist. The purpose is to experience and feel the city as a REAL LOCAL, a real "malagueño". The duration of this activity is 2,5h. which starts with a nice coffee/tea at one of the most iconic squares of the city: Plaza de la Merced. Then, the walk will get started around the historical area in order to discover the most well-known places (as well as surprising, unknown ones) of the centre, while talking about history, curiosities, traditions... and some stories as well :) Where do locals go, what are our customs, where do we go and what do we eat? Besides this, there will be some delicious local products for tasting during the visit. DO YOU FANCY ENJOYING A TOUR WITH A DIFFERENCE? Let's go!
