The Museu Picasso in Barcelona is a key reference for understanding the formative years of Pablo Picasso. The genius of the young artist is revealed through the 4,251 works that make up the permanent collection. Furthermore, the Museu Picasso, opened in 1963, also reveals his deep relationship with Barcelona: an intimate, solid relationship that was shaped in his adolescence and youth, and continued until his death. The Museum is very rich in regard to work from the formative years in the life of the artist; it is practically exhaustive up to the Blue Period. The Museum also houses an important representation of works from 1917, and the series Las Meninas (1957) as well as a comprehensive print collection.

Picasso is "the man" in Barcelona. this museum is spread over several medieval palaces that have been converted for the museum. It's very interesting to see the progression of his work from when he was young and studying to the development of his own style...More

There were 54 rooms of Picasso art. Each had a story of his art development during that period of his life. We purchased a ticket in advance but the line was short when we arrived at 3pm. Glad we came but it did not have...More

The palaces themselves are remarkable places where the museum is placed. We used a taxi (quite cheap in Barcelona), but it is close to the central venues downtown near the marinas. The museum is not too large, but we still needed 1,5-2 hours to see...More

We had a great time learning about Picasso's early life and how talented he was from such a young age. The audio guide is a must as you get to learn things that aren't on the signs. The Las Meninas collection was particularly interesting -...More

This is a fairly extensive collection of Pablo Picasso's works starting in his earliest years as a student before his outsize personality made its mark on the world. Much of it is representational art, not what Picasso is known for. The exception and the gem...More

It’s quite good if you like Picasso. The flow of the museum could be better as we accidentally skipped 40 years. But other than that, pretty decent

Nice museum, nice pieces and the audio tour is good. Not even close to what I expected considering the amount of time that Picasso lived in Barcelona. Worse yet based on the fact that he wanted his museum to be built in Barcelona I expected...More

This gem of a museum, tucked away close to the Gothic Quarter in Barcelona focuses primarily on the artist's early works. Pretty amazing seeing some of the brilliant works by 14 year old Picasso. The jump to the blue, rose and cubist works (there are...More

Don't come here expecting to see LOTS of paintings like Guernica. This museum is more about the artist's journey through life and art. It has some paintings you would never tell were his and some in his more distinctive signature. In a way it makes...More

El Born / La Ribera
The labyrinth that is El Born becomes most apparent
the moment you turn down one of its side streets. But
this is one of the few labyrinths you might actually
enjoy losing your way in. After all, there are few
places that live and breathe such exciting energy
regardless of the time of day. This neighbourhood
seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the
city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants
