Picasso IN barcelona


Picasso’s close ties to Barcelona were forged at the end of the nineteenth century and remained strong right up until his death. Picasso was born in Malaga, but in 1895 he arrived with his family in Barcelona and stayed there until 1904.

The artist lived and worked in Barcelona’s old town: the Ribera neighbourhood and surrounding area. During these years Picasso surrounded himself with artists and made friendships that would last a lifetime and forever link him to the city.
