What’s about

We will begin by introducing you to the social environment of the nineteenth-century Malaga bourgeoisie, in which Pablo Ruiz Picasso was to be born. Malaga, a rich and industrial city, would be reflected in the ceiling’s painting of the Teatro Cervantes, the starting point of this tour.

You will know the Italian origin of his surname and you will meet his family environment. A house full of women and a single male figure, his father Jose Ruiz Blasco, also a painter. You will discover the good fortune of the boy Pablo who, from a young age, was guided by his father to achieve success.

Along the tour we will show you, thanks to a book, Picasso’s works of art related to the Malaga themes that he learned in his youth and inherited especially from his father, such as his love for painting pigeons and bulls.

We will walk through places like the church where he was baptized, his nursery school, or the square where he used to play as a child. You will learn why he had to leave Malaga and why he returned, the times he visited the city as a teenager and what happened in those stages.

To finish our Picasso tour we will go to the Chinitas passage, where you will learn about a tragedy that the artist experienced himself and that would be one of the reasons for not returning to his hometown again.

A essential tour if you want to visit Malaga through the eyes of the great Picasso. A great introduction to discover who Pablo was, what his origins were and why he became the most important artist of the 20th century. Join us!
