This is one of the top things to do if you visit Malecot, Spain. The museum has a pretty decent collection of Picasso, and provides commentary about the different periods of his life. It also includes a lot of the sketches he did for the larger paintings that you often seen other museums. They include an audio guide when you buy the entrance ticket. The museum is laid out and very well organized way where it is easy to follow the audio guide to get a full explanation of his life. I would allocate around 2 to 3 hours for this.

A good museum with detailed audio guides to help you along your way through the two sections. You learn a lot about Picasso's life and how the thing happening in the world and in his life affected him and his art style throughout time. The entrance fee was low, especially for students. I can advice this museum to anyone with a small interest in art.

You have to really love the specific art and history of Picasso to enjoy this one. If not - then it will be wasted time and money I'm afraid. If you don't know how to interpret these paintings they will not give you anything in forms of feelings, awe or inspiration. This exebition is only for the true hardcore art-lovers.

This is a beautiful museum. A lot of Picasso's work and his notebooks. You can use headphones to hear about each painting and sculptures. We'll worth a visit. Reasonable entry fee too. The gift shop is a bit pricey but there are lots of souvenir shops around so you can get postcards of his work cheaper than the gift shop.

8 euro for entry and 6 for students (valid student ID + personal ID as you need to be 25 and under to get the price). 2 large rooms, extra price for special exhibit. Free audio guide. No pictures allowed but they don’t tell you until you’re inside and someone stops you from taking a pic. Lots of cool Picasso work but his most famous works are not in here.

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
