Picasso Private Tour

You can discover the legacy of a young artist who lived in Barcelona thanks to our Picasso private tour.  Do not miss the opportunity to see how the city influenced one of the most iconic and genius artists of the XX century. 

The Picasso Museum holds more than 3500 art pieces, some of them donated by Picasso himself, and can be seen in a magic building in Barcelona city center. The artist lived in Barcelona almost 10 years before moving to Paris and has always had a special relationship with this city, where he wanted to create his own museum.

Picasso studied in the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona and was strongly influenced by the city, its artists and cultural activity. He was very impacted by all the new social movements that were appearing in Europe in the early 1900, so often he was also perceived as a social critic, and his works often dealt with the themes of war, poverty, and oppression.
