The Barcelona of Picasso

Picasso came to Barcelona when he was 13 years old and spent all his youth here, maturing until becoming one of the best painters in the world.

I propose that we go on foot to see where he studied painting, the streets that inspired him, where he had his first painting studio, the places he used to be along with other artists, his first exhibit, where he lived and different works of his around the city.
After walking around the Barcelona’s streets, we will finish the tour visiting the Picasso Museum, how could we not?
We will focus on his early work, his blue period, his pink period, Cubism. . . The museum is completed with the Las Meninas Collection and the ceramics, gifts from Jacqueline.



Duration: 4 hours
Recommended Start time: 10a.m. or 3p.m.


Our entire visit is concentrated in the Gothic Quarter, the Rivera district and the Raval.
– Where he and his family lived

– Important streets and landscapes in his paintings
– Works of Picasso in the street
– “Els 4 Gats” restaurant
