If you are in Barcelona you need to make a trip to the Picasso museum. I guarantee you will leave there feeling untalented and uncreative after understanding what Picasso could do by age 13!

A museum should put the exhibits in some sort if artistic or social context. Rooms and rooms of random Picasso artworks need more context than a paragraph on the wall in each room. There are undoubtedly some masterworks here, but it's just art. I was...More

This is off Las Ramblas street. It traces Picassos journey decade wise. In less than an hour you will be able to see the entire collection. Very educative. If you can you must catch it.

This place is amazing and gives a great insight into Picasso. I knew very little about him other than a few pictures. His art during his early years is beautiful and so intricate. I loved his work in his early teen years, to have such...More

A fantastic museum. Well designed to show Picasso’s development as an artist and shows just how talented he was. A truly worthwhile outing. If you go order tickets online ahead of time to avoid lines.

We bought our tickets online in advance and skipped the lines for this awesome museum. The collection is extensive including works from a very young (14 year old) Picasso to his later modern works, pottery and photography. Even the kids enjoyed it!

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
