The Museum Jorge Rando adjoins the Monasterio de las Mercedarias in Calle Cruz del Molinillo in Málaga. This building was designed by architect Manuel Rivera Valentín (1878) and its construction was financed by the convent’s founder, Mercedes Bisso Vidal. It opened in 1893 and is considered to be an emblematic building of great artistic interest. 



The building consists of the convent, the church, rooms for the postulates, the caretakers’ house and the school/nursery. In the rear patio there is a remarkable orange tree which was planted by the founder of the convent more than 130 years ago.


The works to convert part of the Monastery into a Museum were begun by Málaga council in 2011 and were completed in the spring of 2014 under the direction of architect José Antonio González Vargas. The harshness of expressionist art could not find a better home than this spiritual setting.
