Picasso was a regular at the famous El Quartre Gats café, whose name translates as the The Four Cats. As well enjoying regular tipples here, it was also the stage for his first ever art exhibition.
Excellent tour, Romina, our guide, was very knowledgeable and professional. Be prepared to walk for 2 hours, but you get to stop at various points to listen to the guide. I couldn't recommended more, this tour brings history to the beautiful streets of old Barcelona.
The museum was amazing with a large collection of Picasso starting from when he was only 14 years old. We really enjoyed the tour.
The tour guide was excellent and full of energy! I enjoyed the tour very much and learned a great deal.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. She used a microphone and earpieces so everyone could hear her. We walked the Gothic district and ended up at the museum where she discussed the progression of Picasso's art and showed us the most important works in the museum. We all learned a lot.
I loved the tour -- to see where Picasso lived and painted. The tour guide gave some history of Barcelona and Spanish customs which I enjoyed.
Picasso's legend comes alive in this tour. Walking through the same narrow streets and cafes where he walked, spent his time in his initial days in Barcelona was truly amazing. Learning about his art, life and influences was a lesson in art history. Finally the museum is like an icing on the cake, just awesome and an art lovers paradise. These are few hours of bliss. Enjoy!
the tour gave us a great overview of Barcelona old town as well as all the key
The guide was very knowledgeable and made the tour enjoyable. There was some confusion in the beginning trying to find the contact person that puts the tour together at the entrance of the church and there was a bit of a wait so we did not get it right at 9am. Overall I would still recommend it. The church is beautiful and worth seeing earlier rather than later on during the day.
The building it's housed in is worth the visit alone. Amazing.
Excellent chronologically arranged exhibit displaying Picasso's varied facets and periods and personal history, very interesting as well as the art works.
Our guide was the supremely knowledgeable and charming Noria!
This museum dedicated to Picasso focuses on his childhood work and his development as a uniquely gifted painter and sculptor. Many of Picasso's most famous works are found in other museums, but this exhibit gives one insight into his development and the influence of other artists, i.e., Velazquez.
