The arrival of the Museo Carmen Thyssen Málaga has also coincided with the regeneration of its surrounding area, known as the ‘entorno Thyssen’.
In the museum’s own words: “The Museo Carmen Thyssen has been crucial for the revitalization and recovery of this part of the city, an environment that has regained its vitality and its identity as it takes on a new lease of life driven by the Museum and its brand.”
In practical terms, this means what were once quite dark and intimidating little alleyways are now thoroughly pleasant, welcoming a number of boutique shops and eateries.
Take a wander through this area, signposted by small pink stickers and placards bearing the ‘entorno Thyssen’ brand, and pop in an out of some of the stores. You never know, you may come away with a unique item of clothing, an accessory or jewellery to remember your time in Malaga!
