    Pablo Ruiz Picasso   * 25.10.1881 Málaga   + 08.04.1973 Mougins

    A hundred metres above the Esglesia Santa Maria del Mar runs the Carrer de la Princesa parallel to the port. The side street Montcada is a long narrow street with many grand ancient buildings. The Picasso museum is set into three of them. In 1963 it was inaugurated in the Palace Berenguer dŽAguilar with its beautiful inner courtyard (Montcada 15). The extensions later on include the palaces Castellet (Montcada 17) and Meca (Montcada 19). In summer one has to be prepared for long queues at the ticket office.

    In 1895 PicassoŽs family came to Barcelona. At the time Barcelona was much more avangarde than Madrid and used to be the centre of modernism. After several journeys to Paris, he finally moved there for good in 1904. In 1917 he returned to Barcelona for some time and lived all nearby. In 1970 he donated all works he still possessed, mainly early works, to the museum in Barcelona.
