The Picasso Museum tour and Wine Tasting in el Born is the best tour in Barcelona for you, if you are an art and wine lover as we are!
The famous Spanish painter Pablo Ruiz Picasso lived in Barcelona in his youth and thanks to his friendship with Jaume Sabartes and his donation to the city of several of his works, it was possible to create in 1963 this museum, one of the most visited ones in the city.
In this tour we will start with a guided tour of the Picasso Museum. Your guide will explain you this beautiful and extended collection of his early paintings but as well his mature evolution as an artist along his life. The old Gothic Palaces where the collection is hosted are worth the visit as well.
After the visit of the museum, we will make a nice walk along the picturesque narrow streets that characterize this historical quarter named La Ribera, also known as El Born.
It will be here where we will stop in one of the best wine shops in Barcelona to taste and learn about different Catalan wines with some small appetizers to match with. Your licensed guide, as well certified sommelier, will lead you into it.
