3 art exhibitions to see when you visit Barcelona

If Barcelona is the city of your choice for your autumn city-break, here are three art exhibitions you have to see during your stay in the charming capital of Catalonia.
 
Picasso Museum - Picasso in Barcelona

The exhibition documents Pablo Picasso’s return to Barcelona in 1917 after many years in Paris, a city then at war. Picasso was able to work freely, searching for new forms of expression. This was a moment of stylistic transition in Picasso’s œuvre that would continue in the following years. Until January 28, 2018
