After admiring the Picasso Museum and his works, we briefly move to Plaza de la Costitucion, where the artist took his first steps. The Ateneo is located precisely between the confluence of Calle Compania and Plaza de la Costitucion, between the buildings of the Church of Santo Cristo de la Salud and the old Casa del Consulado
In the Malaga Athenaeum, once the Old Academy of Fine Arts of San Telmo, Pablo Picasso’s father worked as a teacher. In these classrooms, he is said to have approached and fallen in love with this art that later made him famous throughout the world.
The building, initially built by the Jesuits to house a school, is now the seat of the University of Malaga. Let’s now continue to our conclusive chapter by reaching Plaza de Toros.
