The world will celebrate International Tourism Day this Monday, 27 September, and Malaga, as in previous years, will mark the occasion by offering free admission to most of its museums and monuments.

Some are also organising guided tours and themed events, like the Museo Picasso, which will offer guided visits to the Dialogues with Picasso exhibition, a collection that covers 80 years of Picasso’s work and focuses on the diverse themes and techniques that the artist mastered.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to view the old printing press used to print more than 1,000 copies of Picasso’s work.

Other museums that will participate in the initiative include the Thyssen Museum, the Centro Pompidou, the Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Interactive Museum of Music.

In addition to the museums, one can also visit other interesting locations such as the English Cemetery, the La Concepción Botanical Gardens, the Alcazaba complex and the Gibralfaro fortress.

The English Cemetery will open its gates to visitors from 10.30am to 3pm. To help visitors get the most out of the experience, there will be guided tours in English at 12.30pm, and in Spanish at 11am and 2pm.
