Full Description

Discover some of the best Andalusian-themed art on display anywhere with this visit to the Museo Carmen Thyssen Malaga. Since it opened in 2011, the latest addition to Costa del Sol’s cultural scene has become a must-see attraction. There are works by famous Spanish painters such as Francisco de Zurbaran and Julio Romero de Torres as well as foreign artists who were seduced by the beauty of Andalusia and its people.

The museum is located in the stunning 16th century Villalón Palace, a remarkable relic of Renaissance architecture. The permanent collection covers to 19th century Spanish art with a particular emphasis on Andalusian themes. The works are displayed in four sections: Old Masters; Romantic Landscape and Costumbrismo; Précieux style and naturalist painting; and the fin-de-siècle. Each offers a differing yet powerful vision of a world that is no more but which will never cease to arouse our curiosity.

In the Old Masters, you can admire a collection of religious works dating to the Renaissance while in the Romantic Landscape and Costumbrismo section see pieces that are both captivating to look at and thought-provoking. Here, you can observe paintings such as Eugenio Lucas Velázquez’s Maja with a Small Dog and Manuel Barrón y Carrillo’s Port of Malaga. Traditional Andalusian pastimes such as bullfighting and flamenco feature prominently in the Précieux style and naturalist painting section while the fin-de-siècle collection offers new perspectives on similar themes.

The Romantic Andalusia package includes admission to the Thyssen, the city’s folk museum (Museo de Artes y Costumbres Populares) and the Malaga Wine Museum.

Start/opening time: Tuesday to Sunday from 10am to 8pm.
