Museo Carmen Thyssen

Lonely Planet review

One of the city’s latest museums opened in 2011 in an aesthetically renovated 16th-century palace in the heart of the city’s historic centre, the former old Moorish quarter of Málaga. The extensive collection concentrates on 19th-century Spanish and Andalucian art and includes paintings by some of the country’s most exceptional painters, including Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida, Ignacio Zuloaga and Francisco de Zurbarán. Temporary exhibitions similarly focus on 19th-century art.
