The Picasso Museum (Museu Picasso), located in El Raval district, is Barcelona's most visited museum and occupies a medieval mansion that's worth a look for the architecture alone. But inside lay the greatest treasures - the works of Pablo Picasso. The artist had a strong connection to Barcelona, living in and studying mostly in the Ciutat Vella neighborhood from 1895-1904. In the years that followed he was no stranger to the city though no longer a permanent resident. The shared influence of Barcelona on Picasso and Picasso on Barcelona make this city a fitting place to establish a gallery of his work.

The Picasso Museum - or Museu Picasso - is divided into various periods of the artist's career, starting chronologically with his earliest sketches and self-portraits then progressing on to his moody Blue period and ending with his study of Las Meninas by Diego Velazquez.

Pieces are displayed to give each one adequate attention but with over 3,800 paintings the exhibit is by no means sparse. Should the permanent collection not be satisfying enough, there are a few temporary exhibits running at all times that, for an additional cost, will no doubt feed one's need for art.

Practical Info

The Museu Picasso spans over five townhouses on Carrer de Montcada. They date from the 13th-15th centuries and are good examples of the Catalan Civic Gothic style. Characteristic to this style are the courtyard that connects all of the buildings and the outer stairway that gives access to the main floor. Tour the premises and neighborhood a bit to get a sense of medieval Barcelona.
