Discover the presence of Pablo Picasso in Barcelona with an expert guide on Picasso

Barcelona played an important in role Pablo Picasso's life. He arrived here with his family when he was only 13 years old, and soon he joined the "Llotja" art School, where his father was a professor.
On this tour we will walk through places where either the artist lived or studied, and we will pass by the famous "4 gats", the tavern center of bohemian artists towards the end of the 19th century. This will also give you the opportunity to see the old city of Barcelona.

We will focus on the Picasso Museum. We will learn about his first years in Málaga and la Coruña, the arrival to Barcelona and his first trips to Paris, among other episodes of his life and career.

A Recent Review of this tour

We wre extremely happy with the Picasso oriented tour that Laura provided for us. She is very knowkegeable about the art culture in Barcelona in general (including some hidden contmpirary treasures) and Pucasso in particular. After providing us with a physical orientation to Picasso's life in Barcelona including a stop for expresso in a cafe where he hung out we proceeded to the Picasso Museum where she provided a very interesting curation of the collection. Laura was very pleasant, punctual, and engaging
