Andalusia, a cultural destination

Traditionally seen as a summer destination (or as a ski resort, if you think about Sierra Nevada), Andalusia has dramatically changed over the last few years and thus become a cultural hub, with modern museums and international shows, such as Cirque du Soleil, visiting every so often.

In recent years, renowned museums call Malaga home – 37 museums including the Pompidou Museum, the Picasso Museum, the Thyssen Museum and the Russian Museum of St. Petersburg

There are museums to cater for absolutely everyone – from the Flamenco Museum in Seville to the Glass Museum in Malaga, the Bonsai Museum in Marbella or the Lithography Museum in Cadiz, to name just a few; and also UNESCO sites worth a detour, like the Alhambra in Granada, Cordoba‘s Old Town and Mosque-Cathedral, Seville’s magnificent Cathedral, Alcazar and Archive of the Indies or the recently added Dolmens in Antequera and Medina Azahara in Cordoba.

However, in recent years, renowned museums call Malaga home. We can now find 37 museums in the city, with some prominent examples, such as the Pompidou Museum, the only branch of the Parisian one outside France; the Picasso Museum, the Thyssen Museum, the Russian Museum of St. Petersburg in Malaga and the Contemporary Art Museum, to name just a few.


Andalusia is a land of surprises, ready to impress you. Therefore, do not hesitate when planning your next Special Interest trip, if you like art, history or visiting museums – Andalusia has all you need.
