The Picasso Museum in Barcelona has one of the world’s largest collections of Pablo Picasso’s art – a staggering 4,250 pieces. Although Picasso was born in Malagá, he considered Barcelona and Catalonia his true home and the Catalan culture heavily influenced his work.

Dali Theatre Museum Figueres

Figueres Dalí Theatre-Museum

The lively town of Figueres is the birthplace of artist Salvador Dalí. The museum itself was designed by Dalí and as such is as mind-boggling as the artwork inside it! We recommend this as a great day trip for our groups.
