The first part of this tour will take you to the main landmarks of the Medieval Quarter where most of the buildings date back from the 13th to the 15th century. The area that also witnessed of the early years of the artist in Barcelona until he decided to establish in Paris.
Next, we'll visit one of the most important museums in Barcelona, located in 5 consecutive gothic palaces from the 14th century: Picasso's museum. It is the first, and the only one opened during Picasso's lifetime and under his express wish and gratitude to the city that saw him grow.

We'll be passing Cathedral's Square, the Bishop's Palace, the Archdeacon's House, the King's Square complex with the Royal Palace, the Royal Chapel, the Lieutenant's Palace. . . , all dating back Middle Ages, only a few exceptions that I will point out.
