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.

All Pablo, all of the time

Interesting collection of Picasso's works through his career. You won't see his best stuff here (ironic since the museum has his name on it), but it's a good cross section.

Beautiful, but hard to find, museum. Get good directions. If staying for a few days, consider the Museum Pass Barcelona offers for 5 or 6 museums - like passport, you get stamped as you go to each museum. The pass is good for a year if you miss a few this time.

There are so many sketches, paintings and even ceramics beautifully displayed in chronological order. So interesting to see how Picasso's style evolved over the years. The museum is in a small, beautiful old castle - a perfect setting. The collection of Picasso's work here, in one place, is incredible. All in lovely open rooms, spread over 2 floors. Easy walking...

I am not a fan of Picasso's later works, but this was a very nice look at his early works. It was fascinating to watch his progression as an artist.

This is a fantastic museum. Located in the heart of Barcelona. Really great selection of his work, which was obviously vast and varied. Would recommend this place to anyone.

This is a unique view of how Picasso grew from his early paintings into the great master that was his fate. A lovely building set out extremely well. The variety of work and the explanations of Picasso's life and influences are really well done. Some of my favourite paintings. The gift shop is good as well. I have only one... More

Staying in El Born / La Ribera

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood seamlessly transcends the old and new parts of the city, reflected in its vast array of restaurants ranging from fancy Michelin-star establishments to trendy fusion restaurants. Here you'll find historical and cultural attractions such as the popular Picasso Museum and the Gothic cathedral La Santa Maria del Mar, where you just might be able to catch a traditional Catalan wedding.
