“That is where is all started… That is where I understood how far a person could go”. This statement by Picasso about Barcelona could make a good starting point for Barcelona Walking Tours Picasso.
Following in the steps of this artistic genius, we begin a journey through the places in which he spent his youth at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries: the houses of ill repute on the Carrer Avinyó that inspired him to paint Les Demoiselles d’Avignon; the cabaret-bar Els Quatre Gats, which was the heart and soul of the bohemian modernist world and where he mixed with Santiago Rusiñol, Ramon Casas and Antoni Gaudí: and the gallery where he exhibited his work for the first time, in Carrer Petritxol, and the art school where he studied in the Llotja de Mar.
All of these locations are essential for a full understanding of Picasso’s work. The tour finishes with a guided visit of the Picasso Museum which boasts over 4,000 pieces of work by the artist, including the world’s most complete collection of his early work.
