This is a sample itinerary for our Private Picasso Tour.
Final itinerary and timings might vary due to many factors (your location and pace, your main interests…)

10AM

4 GATS CAFE

A Bohemian Meeting Point

10.15AM

Your Picasso Tour will start at the 4 Gats, the bohemian cafe where the modernist artists used to meet to discuss art and hear the freshest intellectual news arriving from Paris.

ARCHITECTS ASSOCIATION BUILDING

A modern Picasso design

10.30AM

While Picasso never set foot in Spain again after the Franco Dictatorship started, he accepted to design a mural that decorates the front of the building that houses the headquarters of the local Architects Association.

PARES ART GALLERY

The oldest art gallery in town

10.45AM

Next we’ll head to Sala Parés: The oldest art gallery in Spain, where Picasso also exhibited (with not as much success as he expected…). This art gallery is located in a very quaint alley that smells of hot chocolate and churros.

LA MERCÈ & LA BARCELONETA

Old Town alleys

11.15AM

And from there, we’ll head to La Mercè and La Barceloneta quarters, where you’ll see the streets where Picasso lived with his parents and where he had his first ateliers, listening to stories about little mischiefs, and strolling through a urban landscape that you’ll later be connecting with the works displayed at the Picasso Museum.

LA LLOTJA

Art training

Noon

And from there, we’ll head to La Mercè and La Barceloneta quarters, where you’ll see the streets where Picasso lived with his parents and where he had his first ateliers, listening to stories about little mischiefs, and strolling through a urban landscape that you’ll later be connecting with the works displayed at the Picasso Museum.

PICASSO MUSEUM

Seeing it with new eyes

12.30PM

Finally, you’ll skip lines with your guide to enter the Picasso Museum of Barcelona and visit its permanent collection. It’s the only museum in the world specialized in the training period of the artist, and it also features a remarkable blue period collection. We’ll also unveil for you the secrets of the Meninas series created by Picasso in the fifties. And of course, you’ll be connecting the places visited during the tour with the paintings you’ll see in the museum.

2PM

When the tour is over, your guide can give you ideas for lunch, or put you on a taxi or give you directions to take the subway or walk back to your hotel.
