Discovering the close relationship between Picasso and Barcelona
Barcelona played a very important role in Picasso's life. Pablo Picasso arrived to Barcelona at the age of 14 and spent most of his childhood and his teenage years here.
Picasso always said: Barcelona was the place where my career as artist started, Barcelona was the place where I found out how far I would go in life.
We will explore the narrow alleys and streets that compose the Old District of Barcelona to see the places that inspired him as a young artist. We will visit the Four Cats Tavern, Sala Pares Art Gallery (place of Picasso's first individual exposition). We will see the School of Fine Arts where He studied and the location of his parent's house and some of his studios in Barcelona. We will finish the tour visiting the Picasso Museum located in El Born district.

The Footsteps of Picasso tour with "Tano" was great. He was so friendly and knowledgeable about the old historic area of Barcelona, took us through all the cute narrow alleys, explaining the history. Once in the museum, he proved to be an expert on Picasso as well. Very enjoyable afternoon and well worth the time and money. Highly recommend booking him.
