Five medieval palaces in the Born district were united to create this museum, which honors one of the greatest Spanish artists of all time, Pablo PIcasso.

Undoubtedly, Modernism has had a great role in the history of Catalonia, and especially in the city of Barcelona, making it the great city we know today.

Joan Miró was one of the most famous artists that Barcelona gave the world, besides being one of the top representatives of surrealism worldwide.
