Pablo Ruiz Picasso needs little introduction.
If you are here, you probably already know that he was born in Málaga in 1881. This world-renowned artist left an everlasting mark on our city.
We suggest you follow in the footsteps of the genius in Málaga and discover his family background and early days as an artist.
Born into a bourgeois family, we will visit Picasso’s birthplace in the popular Plaza de la Merced, where you will be able to take a photograph with the artist himself.
Yes, you read that right.
We will continue along the legendary Calle Granada to visit one of the city’s most beloved temples: the Church of Santiago.
If we’re lucky, we will find it open and take a look inside.
What is so special about this church?
Well, this is where the artist was baptised as Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Crispiniano María de los Remedios de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso.
An impressive name, right?
You might not have noticed, but, among so many names, the surname he chose for his career, the one we will always remember him by, was his mother’s surname.
Rounding off this guided tour of Málaga by Picasso, we will visit the museum dedicated to the artist in his hometown, the Picasso Museum in Málaga.
