An Art and Cultural hub

Malaga is one of the Spanish cities with more art galleries and museums. Actually, it is the birthplace of one of our most universally recognised painters: Pablo Picasso. That is why the Picasso Museum, dedicated to the life and works of Malaga’s most famous native son, is a must-visit for art lovers.

Apart from Picasso, the city offers a diverse array of options for visitors, ranging from the Pompidou Centre to the Museum of Cars and Fashion. In addition, Malaga has evolved into a vibrant centre for street art, with numerous colourful murals adorning its walls. Each year, Malaga hosts the ‘MAUS’ street art festival, along with various other art events and exhibitions. At Coeo, we frequently organise urban art expos within our Pod Hostel facilities.

Another interesting art aspect of Malaga is related to the so-called 7th art; that is, cinema. Antonio Banderas, the renowned actor, was born in this city. He has a genuine love for his hometown, which can be evidenced by his active participation in the Semana Santa Malagueña. And also in his establishment of the Teatro Soho CaixaBank, a new theatre that draws people from all over the world. Speaking of cinema, the Malaga Film Festival is also a draw to visit this wonderful city.
