Overview

Choose our Barcelona Picasso Tour and discover Barcelona through the eyes of the most influential painter of the 20th century, Pablo Picasso.

If you are artistic, curious and adventurous all at the same time, this is the perfect tour for you! We offer our customers 4 hours guided tour with your own private guide to tell you everything about Picasso’s personal life and art.

Pablo Picasso was a Spanish sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright but probably best known as a painter. He is considered one of the main artists of the 20th century, also being one of the founders of the Cubist movement, a revolutionary artistic style. His art stroke in 20th century not only because of its undeniable and absolutely unique beauty but also for the deep social message they always carry. In fact, Picasso was a fervent pacifist and his love for humanity throb through all his magnificent artworks.

The artist was born in Malaga, but his parents moved to Barcelona when he was very young. In 1904 he moved to France where he lived the rest of his life, though he kept on going back to his beloved Barcelona. This gives evidence of how Barcelona inspired him and contributed to make him the icon he is nowadays.

Exceptionally prolific throughout the course of his long life, Picasso’s works are usually divided into periods. You should really explore them all. Your English-speaking guide will bring you to Picasso’s Museum for an in-depth visit of his main early works hosted inside 5 medieval buildings. The Museum also contains the series Las Meninas (1957) and a comprehensive print collection.

After the museum, you will enjoy a magical walk through the Borne and Gothic districts. You might be a little hungry by now. No problem, we thought about it too. Next stop will be Picasso’s favourite restaurant in Barcelona, the “Restaurant of the 4 Cats”. Opened in 1897, the restaurant became a meeting place for many famous modernist artists, above all Pablo Picasso. He was even asked to decorate the menu covers, thus turning them into one of his masterpieces. Apart from Picasso, actually the restaurant itself is really nice to see, thanks to peculiar interiors and Gothic style and atmosphere.

The last part of the tour will be the Sala Pares (Pares Exhibition Centre), the gallery where Picasso arranged his first exhibition. Surely the gallery is a must-see if you are a Picasso lover, but it fulfils everybody’s artistic preferences, as it houses a collection of worldwide artists, as well as Catalan and Spanish works of the 19th and 20th century.

The museum is an eye-opener with many of Picasso's early paintings, showing his obvious early talents. It is in a beautiful building and the walking part of the tour was highly informative with a very educated guide.

The architecture alone of this museum is breath taking. A must see for all who love Picasso and architecture. The works shown in the museum where very interesting. It housed several of his portraits which he painted at the age of 11. We had a great guide who was friendly and really knew what she was talking about.

Enjoyed the Picasso Museum, especially the building as it is housed in a gorgeous place. The collection is small but very interesting, many of his works from early life which I find fascinating! Definitely worth a visit as this is also a Picasso walking tour.

A great tour and the small but packed museum gives a complete view of the many phases of Picasso’s works. We were so glad that we had skip the line tickets as there was a wait to get in and when we left the line was even longer.

I absolutely loved this tour! I didn’t know much about Picasso until I came here. Very nice display of his early works until his death. The walk was informative and having a private guide meant that we learned a lot and did not have to queue for the museum. I absolutely recommend this tour and you do not have to be an art fan to enjoy it.
