Combine a Journey back to the Ancient and Middle Ages with a visit to Picasso's Museum with a private guide

Are you interested in Contemporary Art?
Are you Passionate about Picasso?
Maybe you have already seen his most famous masterpieces in the museums all over the world but what about his very first early works?
If you want to know the young Picasso, whose adolescence and early youth took place in Barcelona, the works of his apprenticeship, as well as others related to his blue period and later, this tour is a must-see for you.

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.


First of all, we'll enjoy a relaxing stroll through the Medieval streets of Barcelona. 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.
The second part of the tour will be consecrated to Pablo Picasso by visiting his museum. Art from the 20th Century wrapped in five consecutive medieval palaces.
The museum is closed on Mondays.
