Skip the line on your visit to the Picasso Museum and discover the bond between Picasso and Barcelona. Head to the core of Barcelona, where the city was founded 2,000 years ago, and enjoy the charms of the Gothic Quarter with your licensed tour guide.
What to Expect
The Picasso Museum and the surrounding Gothic and Ribera quarters in Barcelona are testimony to the close tie between the artist and the city. On this 2.5-hour walking tour you’ll learn about this bond and enjoy the Gothic Quarter's charming corners and hidden squares as well.
Admire the façade of the Gothic Cathedral that took 6 centuries to build from its beginnings in the 13th century. See the remnants of the Roman wall at Plaça Ramon Berenguer.
Enjoy skip-the-line admission to the Picasso Museum, and be inspired by the first steps of Pablo Picasso as an artist. The museum is key to understanding the development of this young artist during the years 1887-1901.
Stroll through Plaça del Rei, a medieval marvel with the Tower of King Martí, the 15th-century Chapel of Santa Àgata, and the 14th-century Saló del Tinell. It is said that the Catholic monarchs, Ferdinand and Isabela, received Columbus here on his return from America.
Discover Plaça Sant Jaume, where the city’s 2 major Roman roads crossed. This square is the center of Barcelona’s political activity with the City Hall facing the Palau de la Generalitat, the seat of the autonomous Catalan government.
The tour will end at Plaça Sant Jaume in the Gothic Quarter. From this point it’s just a 2-minute walk to La Rambla, so you can explore further or return to Plaça Catalunya. Your guide will provide any directions you might need.
