3 Museums in Spain Every Picasso Lover Has to Visit at Least Once

Pablo Picasso is one of Spain’s most legendary artists, and his art is now scattered all around the world. You can find his paintings everywhere from Paris to New York, but some of his most iconic works of art are still displayed in Spanish museums—starting with these three.

Picasso Museum, Barcelona

Picasso spent his formative years in Barcelona, so it’s not a surprise that this city hosts the most extensive collection of his work. With over 4,000 works on display, this museum is a must-visit for art fans, and it features some of his best-known early paintings.

Picasso Museum Málaga

Picasso was born in Málaga, and another museum dedicated to his body of art can be found in his hometown. This cultural institution opened its doors in the Buenavista Palace in 2003 and it features 285 works donated by the painter’s family members.

Reina Sofia Museum

Spain’s national museum of 20th-century art isn’t dedicated solely to Picasso, but it’s home to one of his most iconic works of art. His seminal painting Guernica is one of the most notable paintings at this museum, and one of the main reasons why everyone wants to visit it.
