Many of Spain’s most iconic artists spent their formative years in Barcelona, so it’s not a surprise that you can find museums dedicated to their body of art in this city. Here are three single-artist museums that you shouldn’t miss while exploring the Catalan capital.

Picasso Museum

With over 4,000 works by Pablo Picasso on its grounds, this museum houses one of the largest collections dedicated to his body of work. The museum is dedicated to exploring the artist’s relationship with the city of Barcelona and it’s home to some of his major early works.

Gaudí House Museum

Antoni Gaudí is one of the architects who shaped Barcelona into the city it is today, by designing some of its main landmarks, such as Sagrada Família and Casa Milà. His former house is located within Park Güell and it now serves as a museum dedicated to his life and art.

Fundacion Joan Miró

Joan Miró is another Spanish painter and sculptor who left an important trace on Barcelona. Fans of contemporary art should check out this museum built in his honor, located on the Montjuïc hill, which houses many works that he donated to this cultural institution.
