Museum of Fine Arts

Malaga's Museum of Fine Arts is found in the old palace of the Buenavista Counts, and is an impressive structure, built between 1530 and 1540, featuring a Renaissance facade and a cloistered patio.

On the ground floor paintings, sculptures, furniture and ceramics from the Gothic, Renaissance, and the Baroque period are displayed. Among the Baroque pieces are works made by Ribera, Alonso Cano and Pedro Mena and some of the Romantic pieces are made by Benlliure and Gutiérrez Vega. The rest of the upper floors contain exhibits of contemporary art, mainly by Malagan artists. Some of these include Belgrano, Degrain, Carbonero, Sorolla, Madrazo and Moreno Villa. One room features only Picassan works, with a range of pieces from his earlier and later periods.

Opening hours:
Mondays, Saturdays and Sundays: 9 am – 2 pm
Tuesdays: 3 pm – 9 pm
