We will head to Picasso’s museum in the Born district to understand why he is the most important painter of the 20th century and why he always wore horizontal striped t-shirts! Through his paintings we will feel his life as a brilliant artist.
On our way we will walk in Santa Caterina’s food market with Gaudi’s inspired curvy roof and visit a unique store where we will learn some magic tricks. After visiting the Picasso Museum we will travel in time to medieval times once we step in Santa Maria del Mar, popularly known as the Cathedral of the Sea…can you find a FCBarcelona coat of arms in one of its stained glass windows? What are these simbols on the floor?
