As a painter, printmaker, ceramicist, sculptor, stage designer, poet, and playwright, Picasso was a busy man, but he somehow found time to frequent a few key places in Barcelona. Now you can follow in his footsteps! Explore bohemian Barcelona with a guide, then find out more about this artist's colorful life at the world-famous Museu Picasso.
Take a guided walk with an expert and travel through the late 19th and early 20th centuries in Barcelona, as you listen to stories of Picasso - where did he live as a young dreamer, who were his friends and influences? And more importantly, where did he like to party?
You'll visit special spots like Quatre Gats, the beer hall and cabaret on Carrer Montsió, and witness the friezes on the façade of the Collegi d'Arquitectes, Picasso's only open-air artwork in Catalonia.
See the former art school where Picasso went from great to one of the greatest - the Llotja de Mar - and take a breezy walk along Carrer d'Avinyó, where Picasso found inspiration for his painting Les Demoiselles d'Avignon.
At Museu Picasso, you can get even more details on Picasso's early years and artistic development thanks to over 4,000 amazing works. A must for anyone interested in art, historic Barcelona, and the life of Picasso.

It was a pleasant experience.
I learnt a lot about the life and development of Pablo Picasso as an artist. Carlos also talked about many things I did not know about Catelan history and Picasso’s political stance during the civil war and the world wars.
He took the group through the museum and explained the evolution of Picasso’s various styles as we passed through the different galleries,
It was a most enjoyable experience.
