- the resident Picasso Collection,

- the archaeological site underneath it.
Picasso's Birthplace in Málaga
Pablo Diego Jose Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno Crispin Crispiniano de la Santisima Trinidad Ruiz Picasso was born there in 1881, and by 1889 his talent for painting was clear.
While still in his formative years, he was obliged to move with his family to Barcelona, and eventually Picasso made the south of France his long-term home and workplace.
The Málaga Picasso Museum houses much of the personal collection of Picasso's daughter-in-law and grandson, comprised of hundreds of paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics and prints spanning Picasso's entire career.
The exhibits are displayed in chronological order according to the periods used to mark his development as an artist, from Blue and Rose to Cubism and beyond.
