Gothic Quarter and Picasso Museum
Gothic Quarter and Picasso Museum is a walking tour of two historic neighborhoods at the city center of Barcelona, the Gothic and the Rivera/Born.
The Gothic Quarter has the oldest remains in town, and at the Ribera/Born we have both ancient and modern.
At the Gothic we’ll stroll through the narrow streets and medieval squares, seeing the Cathedral, the Roman ruins, and the Old Jewish quarter named El Call. Maybe we can stop for a nice coffee at one of our favorite gardens or stop by one of the many excellent bakeries.
We’ll then cross Via Laietana to arrive at the stunning Palau de la Música Catalana, a magnificent concert hall, built in 1904 by Domenec i Muntaner and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
On the Quartier of “La Ribera or El Born” we have the 13th-century church of Santa Maria del Mar and the Montcada Street with its medieval houses. On this street is where the Picasso Museum is located. It is fascinating to be able to enjoy the work of Picasso inside some ancient buildings. You’ll discover some of the greatest works of this Spanish artist. This museum features lesser-known masterpieces from his early years, as well as classics from his Blue and Cubist Period. It is a very charming museum, and one of our favorite ones.
All our tours are flexible, let us know what would you like to see the most and feel free to suggest us other interests. At the Raval, another historical area we have some impressive buildings like the Medival Hospital of la Santa Creu, where we can read the plaque dedicated to Antoni Gaudí that died there in 1926.
