Following the young Picasso steps in the Old Barcelona
Let me take you through Picasso's world!
Picasso is a world-renowned artist whose work is reflected in the entire history of 20th century art. He moved to Barcelona when he was 13 and stayed until moving to Paris when he was 19. For that sharp 13 year old boy who came from the deep-oldfashioned-traditional Spain, modern BCN represented an open window to a sophisticated world.
We will stroll through the narrow alleys of the Gothic Quarter and follow Picasso's steps: the places that hosted his firts exhibits, the café where he met the bohemian of the time, where he lived, where he studied. There will be time for a little break in the middle of the tour for coffee or might be some chocolate and churros.
The tour will finish with the visit to the Museum, opened during his lifetime in 1963, under his expressed wish.
Join me on this tour to discover the Picasso before becoming Picasso.
