Pablo Picasso was undoubtedly one of the greatest painters in history, as well as one of the greatest exponents of Cubism.
One of the largest collections of the Spanish artist is found in Barcelona, in what is one of the most famous and visited museums in the city; the Picasso Museum.
Located in the Ribera district, the Picasso Museum Barcelona is housed in a complex that encompasses 4 adjacent buildings.
Most of his works date back to his youth, which he spent in Barcelona. And the link with the city is evident in most of his works. Through his paintings it is possible to admire the social environment, the urban landscape and street scenes of the Barcelona of yesteryear.
