A chronological view of the artist's life visiting the Picasso museum in Barcelona.
Born in Malaga in 1881, the well-known artist Pablo Picasso moved to Barcelona with his parents when he was only 13 years old. As Barcelonians, we are very proud to say that the artist spent his training years in our city.
The official opening of the museum in 1963, caused some controversy.
Visited by 1 million people in 2016, it is one of Barcelona's highlights. We will learn not only about his art, but also about his personal life. The museum is distributed in a chronological order and holds pieces from his early years as an artist. Without any doubt, a must see!
After learning about Picasso's work through his paintings, we will start an interesting walking tour to discover the places where Picasso lived, worked, the gallery where his first private exposition was held, the places he frequented. . .
Picasso's Barcelona is waiting for you! Discover the city through the eyes of this unique artist and tireless worker.
