The Museum of Contemporary Spanish Engraving, located in the heart of the old quarter of Marbella is an important site in the Old Town area. The museum housed in the Old Hospital Bazan has a permanent collection that includes the work of top contemporary artists like Picasso, Tapies, Dali and Miro. Aside from its permanent collection, the museum also has temporary exhibitions on a regular basis. The museum building was formerly the home of the mayor until it was donated and used as a hospital.
