The famous Picasso Museum in Barcelona
The Catalan Capital is lucky to be blessed with an abundance of art festivals, events, and museums, as well as temporary exhibitions, and unique contemporary architecture. Antoni Gaudi, the Spanish architect particularly influenced the face of this beautiful city with his modern and highly individualistic designs, and you can see evidence of his work in Casa Batlló and Casa Milá (both located on Passeig de Gracia), as well as Park Güell, and the unfinished Sagrada Familia Cathedral.
However, he wasn’t the only artist that had a special connection with the city as Barcelona has one of the most extensive collections of artworks by the 20th century Spanish artist Pablo Picasso thanks to the special relationship he shared with the city, which was shaped in his youth and adolescence, and continued until his death.
The Picasso Museum, located on 15-23 Calle Moncada in La Ribera area in the charming Old District comprises one of the most popular and most visited museums in the city. It is a key reference for understanding the formative years of this great artist and his genius is revealed through more than 3,800 works that make up the permanent collection.
The history of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona is the chronicle of the artist’s firm wish to leave the imprint of his art in our city. Thanks to the wishes of Picasso and his friend and personal secretary, Jaume Sabartés, Barcelona now has the youthful work of one of the twentieth century’s most significant artists.
Furthermore, this Museum, which has undergone successive renovations and expansions, is currently starting to develop new programmes, activities and services to become a reference place, envisaged to spreading knowledge and to fostering the visitor’s participation and critical views.
