Five Ronda Spaces Devoted To Art
Ronda’s streets burst with art. With almost a dozen museums for a population of just 35,000 inhabitants, this Malaga town is sure to satisfy your appetite for art.
Named after founder Juan Lara Jurado, the Museo Lara is another utterly unique collection, one that brings together trinkets and gadgets spanning many areas of endeavour over the last few hundred years. There is something to capture your attention in every room, from pistols, clocks and catapults to old typewriters and instruments of torture used during the Inquisition.
Grabados Somera is both a gallery and a souvenir shop, displaying locally made etchings and prints depicting scenes from Andalusian culture. The walls of the Calle Rosario outlet are plastered with these delightful works, many of which present scenes from Ronda’s history or depict its most beautiful buildings. A ten-minute stroll away, on Calle Molino, is the studio where the prints have been made since 1985, using centuries-old techniques. Both spaces make for a fascinating visit, and offer classy gifts and mementos to take back home.
This gallery takes its name from one of Ronda’s most famous artists, Joaquin Peinado (1898-1975). Upon completion of his studies in 1923, Peinado moved to Paris, where he became one of the most prominent members of the French capital’s Spanish School, along with his friend Pablo Picasso. The museum is housed in an exquisitely restored 19th-century palace—Palacio de Moctezuma—and showcases more than 190 works throughout ten rooms, including important paintings such as Still Life With Pears and Figure With a Dove. Also displayed are sketches and drafts never seen before the gallery’s opening.
