Tour description

The origins of a young Picasso in an effervescent Barcelona.

Everyone knows Barcelona as the artistic capital of the Mediterranean , a city that has given life to many of the most influential artists in history.
On this tour we are going to focus on a world figure, the genius , the transgressor, an icon of art.

We are talking about Picasso , born in Malaga in 1881, despite not being a native of Barcelona, ​​his history and success would not make any sense without her.
We will enter the entire Ciutat Vella of Barcelona to learn in detail the origins of a young Pablo Picasso to discover his incredible youthful experiences that led him to Paris in 1904.
We will focus on the experiences of this great genius , which led him to be the greatest reference in modern art.
Let's get lost in the streets of old Barcelona to learn about the origins of Pablo Picasso, where he forged his career to become one of the greatest artists in history.

Barcelona without Picasso wouldn't be the same, Picasso without Barcelona wouldn't be the same either...

We really enjoyed this tour so much. Neither of us knew much of anything about Picasso and learned so much while also seeing really cool places in Barcelona. It was perfect for our short trip here. Highly recommend.
