There’s something beautiful about spending time in a historic city is imagining the lives of all the people who have lived there over the years. Although there are newer buildings and areas, in Barcelona you can walk on the same streets that were walked upon by Picasso and it’s a mind blowing feeling. Picasso lived here at various points during his life and the city had a formative effect on his artistic career – he staged his first individual exhibition at Els Quatre Gats cafe on Carrer de Montsió, which he used to frequent along with other creative thinkers of the time. You can check out the restaurant, explore the neighborhoods where he lived and visit the Picasso museum in El Gotico – its free Thursday evenings 6-9.30pm.
