Itinerary

Pablo Picasso moved to Barcelona when he was 13 and stayed until the age of 19 at which time he moved to Paris.  Picasso is a world-renowned artist whose work is reflected throughout the entire history of the 20th century art.

He was a sharp 13-year-old boy, who came from the deep-old-fashioned-traditional Spain.  The modern BCN represented an open window to a sophisticated world.  In the Picasso Museum you will discover the young Picasso, the one before becoming the famous Picasso.

The Picasso Museum was opened during his lifetime in 1963. Under his expressed wish it was named Sabarter's Collection. Only after Franco's death in 1975 would the name be changed to the Picasso Museum. Find out why and be amazed!
