The Picasso Museum is a must for all art lovers who visit Barcelona. It is a monographic museum dedicated to the painter Pablo Ruiz Picasso, with the most important collections in the world of youth and formative period of this universal artist who was very close to Barcelona throughout all his life and who wanted to have his museum in the Catalonian capital.

The Picasso Museum occupies five large medieval buildings (the Aguilar, Baró de Castellet, Mecca, Finestres and Casa Mauri palaces) located in the quarter of La Ribera. The buildings built in the 13th - 14th centuries and very modified later, follow the Catalan Gothic style.

Permanent collection

The permanent collection contains over 4,200 works. The great part of the exposed paintings correspond to the period between 1890 and 1917. The museum has very few works from the later period. One of the most important is the Las Meninas series. The collection of engravings and lithographs basically comprises the period between 1962 and 1982. The collection also includes sculptures, illustrations made for various books and ceramic objects.
