Beautiful Malaga-February 4th 2020
Updated: Feb 7
Last year we visited Malaga a couple of times. We loved it so much we thought of renting in Malaga. The prices for apartments are much higher. Fuengirola is 50 minutes away by train, so we decided we could visit all we wanted. Malaga is one of the oldest city in Spain and it shows. The antiquity times are still present in this town. There is so much architecture to be seen, many gardens and museums. Today we visited two of them: Museo Carmen Thyssen and Museo Picasso. Both were fantastic.
The Museo Carmen Thyssen '' is housed in the Palacio Villalon a 16th century city palace ....the palace was built over the remains of the Remains of the Roman City, within the old Moorish quarter of Malaga.''(exert from the museum's pamphlet) It hosts on three floors; Romantic landscape, Old Masters, the fin-de-siècle and temporary exhibition. Right now it was Fantasia Arabe. beautiful works of the well know artist. It covers years of human history. We enjoyed every parts of it.
The Museo Picasso is also ''housed in an old Palacio, the Palacio de los Condes de Buenavista, a renaissance building with Mudejar elements'' (from their pamphlet). It does contain an impressive collection of his work from his very beginning to his death. It is the second Picasso museum I visit, the first one around five years ago in Barcelona. This one has inscribed exerts of his writings and thoughts. It made it more personal, you get to know him a little better. His view on art and of his works. I thoroughly enjoyed the visit, so did Jim.
We stopped for lunch past 3 o'clock after leaving home around 9 am. It was delicious tuna salad for me, cured ham and tomato on toasts for Jim and a garlic chicken and fries as a second plate. Hope you enjoy the read! Hasta luego!
