Museu Picasso

Placed in five catalan gothic-styled palaces linked by an interior corridor, it has a collection of 4,249 works (painting, sculpture, drawing, etching). It has one of the most complete collections related to the artist’s youth.

The Picasso Museum in Barcelona is a must for anyone interested in art and culture in the city. Located in the heart of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter, this museum houses one of the most comprehensive collections of the famous Spanish painter Pablo Picasso, from his youth to his mature years.

The museum was inaugurated in 1963 and has more than 4,000 works of art by Picasso, including paintings, drawings, sculptures and ceramics. In addition, the museum also has temporary exhibitions that focus on other important artists and artistic movements.

The permanent collection of the Picasso Museum is divided into different creative periods of the artist. It begins with Picasso's work in his youth, when he was influenced by the styles of academic art and impressionism. The collection then focuses on Picasso's famous blue and pink period, where his works reflect a melancholy and sadness through the use of blue and pink tones.

One of the most fascinating sections of the museum is dedicated to Picasso's work during the 1920s and 1930s, where he experimented with cubist and surrealist styles. There, visitors can see some of Picasso's most famous works, such as "Les Demoiselles d'Avignon", "Weeping Woman" and "The Guitarist".

Another important section of the museum focuses on Picasso's works during the Spanish Civil War and World War II, where the artist portrays the destruction and suffering of the time.

The Picasso Museum building is also a work of art in itself. It is located in a historic building that used to be a former residence of nobles in the 18th century. The façade of the building features a beautiful garden with sculptures and fountains, which offers a relaxing and beautiful atmosphere for visitors to the museum.
