The project of “cultural regeneration” of the city calls the capital of the Costa del Sol as one of the trendiest destinations of Europe. Some experts define Malaga as the new Barcelona. The cultural investment of the capital of the Costa del Sol adds the increase of cruise tourism. Some of the most important projects in 2016 are the opening of the Museum of Fine Arts and Archaeology Museum to complete the cultural puzzle of Malaga.
Thanks to a multi-million pound regeneration project, and several new galleries and museums, this city has become one of Europe’s hippest destinations. Along with a thriving cultural scene, there are good restaurants, great shopping and exciting nightlife. Malaga is moving on!
In April 2016 the first of several popup versions of the famous Parisian gallery “Centre Pompidou” planned outside France, opened in Malaga. It is housed in a low-slung white building topped with a giant glass cube in the trendy harbor area. The exhibition shows 90 works by artists such as Miró, Magritte and Picasso on loan from the Pompidou in France, plus an exhibition exploring dance and choreography.
Across town, the first overseas branch of St Petersburg State Russian Museum has just opened in a refurbished tobacco factory. Next door is the Malaga Automobile Museum, an extraordinary celebration of cars, fashion and art. The Automobile Museum in Malaga houses around 90 classic cars.
Malaga’s Picasso Museum opened in 2003, a long-held dream of the artist, who was born in the city in 1881. The Picasso Birthplace Museum in the house where he lived until he was 10 years old, contains paintings, ceramics, early photos, belongings and sketchbooks. What sets Malaga apart — for now, at least — is that all these galleries tend to be uncrowned, refreshingly small, and most in walking distance of each other. That means there’s plenty of time to explore Andalusian cuisine.
Let’s go to Malaga, explore the city and find out why Malaga is moving on and that it is only 45 minutes from Marbella and Hotel Don Carlos Leisure Resort & Spa.
