Art and History
Picasso, Gaudi and Miró in Barcelona
We propose you a discovery of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona with a great luxury of detail. To begin, you will discover the city of the painter, Gaudí and Miró, that means, that you will explore the most artistic side of Barcelona in a cultural, historical and anecdotal route with your local guide in Barcelona.
Did you know that the mothers of Miró and Picasso were friends twenty years before the two genies met in Paris? Did you know that Gaudi did drawing lessons when he was about 60 and that in the same class there was … Joan Miró?
Short stories about the great artists of Barcelona will accompany you during the discovery of the artistic side of Barcelona. I propose to visit the old Barcelona with a local guide in a unique way: while following in the footsteps of Antoni Gaudi, Pau R. Picasso and Joan Miró in Barcelona. The visit of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona will be the icing on the cake.
How to discover the life of Barcelona artists?
The life of the three artists will serve as a common thread for a private tour that will take you from Pla de Palau to the Picasso Museum in Barcelona while passing by the Cathedral, the Old Jewish Quarter and the Rambla.
Pla de Palau was the witness of the artistic formation of the three geniuses. The art school “la Llotja” had hosted different artistic disciplines. Then, a walk through Old Barcelona, will show you the streets trampled by Picasso during his teenage years. In addition, the rue d’Avignon will take us where Joan Miró was born.
In addition, the Royal Square and the Rambla will show us the first works of Antoni Gaudí and the last of Joan Miró. In fact, our steps on the Rambla will take us to the Gothic Quarter, to discover the old Jewish Quarter, the facade of the Cathedral and the place of St. Philip Neri.
The visit of the Picasso Museum in Barcelona will show you the emotional connection of the artist with the city.
How is a guided tour of the Picasso Museum?
After the walk through the Gothic Quarter, the Ribera district will welcome you. This is the commercial part of medieval Barcelona, the most residential and lively part. We usually say that the Gothic Quarter is the administrative part (even today) and that the Ribera is the really dynamic part.
This is where you will discover craftsmen’s workshops on your way to Montcada Street, where the Picasso Museum is located. Montcada is a street with a strong medieval character thanks to its architecture. In addition, the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, the various art galleries and craft workshops have preserved the traditional spirit of the district.
Enjoy the Picasso Museum in Barcelona in a guided tour
The last part of the tour is a guided tour of the Picasso Museum. And since we are certified guides we can take the fast track entrance. You will be amazed by the painter’s early works such as the “portrait of an elderly man” or the sketch of the “old fisherman”. In addition, his self-portraits at fourteen will reveal an unknown Picasso and his family life in Barcelona.
After this visit of the artistic Barcelona including the Picasso Museum in Barcelona, your point of view about the artist will change. That’s for sure.

Anna was great! She was informative without being boring, catered to our specific sight-seeing requests, and kept us fully enlightened and entertained. How this woman has so much knowledge, I don’t know! She literally had the answer to every single question we had. We stopped for a coffee mid-way as she could sense we were getting tired from walking and I enjoyed chatting to her socially. I 100% recommend her for anyone going to Barcelona!
We engaged Anna for a 3 days private tour in Barcelona. She is very dedicated and knowledgeable on every places of interest in Barcelona. When my child wasn’t feeling too well during the trip, she was flexible and accommodative to our last minute changes and requests. My family truly enjoyed our trip in Barcelona and had a wonderful time spent with Anna. If you are looking for customized private tour, Anna will be the best person to engage!!
We concur with all the previous wonderful reviews of Anna and her team. We ended up having three tours with Anna and each one was different, informative and superb. If you would prefer to soak in the city and keep your nose out of the guide books and maps contact Barcelonina. Our trip to Spain had been derailed but once we contacted Jordi, everything started to improve. These folks have it together, make great suggestions on what to do and are patient with letting you make up your mind. Barcelona would not have been nearly as fascinating without them.
