Description

In this tour, discover the Picasso Museum and the Gothic and Ribera quarters, which are testimony of the tie between the artist and this city. Explore the Gothic Quarter's charming corners, hidden squares and ancient narrow streets.

From Placa Catalunya, we head towards the Gothic Cathedral to admire its facade that was started in the 13th Century and finished 6 centuries later. You will discover the remains of the Roman Wall at Placa Ramon Berenguer.

After that, you will avoid the queues at the Picasso Museum with our Skip the Line ticket and enjoy a guided visit of this must-see museum of Barcelona.

Be inspired by the first steps of Pablo Picasso as the renowned artist he is. This Museum is the key to understand the transformation of this young artist into a genius from 1887 to 1901. You will find his Blue Period's pieces, an important series of works from 1917, the series of Las Meninas (1957) and a comprehensive print collection. This magnificent compilation is housed in 5 medieval palaces and it was inaugurated in 1963 as the artist wished. The museum has a collection of 4,200 pieces of art. Enjoy some free time at the museum after this enriching visit.

Our next stop will be at Placa del Rei (King's Square), a medieval marvel with the Tower of King Marti, which is a 5 floors high tower built in 1555. We will also admire the Santa Agata's chapel (15th Century) and the Salo del Tinell (1359-1362). It is said that the Catholic monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabela, received Columbus here when he returned from America.

We will continue to the Placa Sant Jaume. Historically, the city's two major Roman roads crossed here: the Cardo and the Decumanus. This square is the centre of the city's political activity with the City Hall facing the Palau de la Generalitat, the seat of the Autonomous Catalan Government.

The tour will end here. You will be able to stay longer and wonder around, return to Placa Catalunya or go to La Rambla, 2 minutes walk far from the Placa Sant Jaume. Our guide will give you all the directions you may need.
