From cubist masterpieces to ultra-modern beach bars
Picasso Museum and the Barceloneta Seafront
Housing thousands of paintings, drawings, lithographs, engravings and ceramics, the Barcelona Picasso Museum is one of the world’s most extensive and eclectic collections of work by the great Spanish artist. Our expert guide will give you a private tour. It ranges from Picasso’s apprentice sketches to Blue Period masterpieces and the Las Meninas series – multiple variations on an image that obsessed him. Stepping out into the Mediterranean sunlight, you’ll also walk the seafront. We stroll La Barceloneta, a former fishing village with its own history, character and even its own flag. Experience the vibrant bar scene and foodie culture of this singular barrio (neighbourhood).
