Our guide was educated (for the most part) engaging and interesting to listen to. She was delightful and at the same time we’ll informed. The reason I hesitate is she was asked if any f Picasso’s children “did” anything. She wasn’t sure. Pabloma Piacasso, whine she spoke of is a fashion designer and had designed jewelry for Tiffani’s. She should know that. I was too shy to say.
The museum is more interesting, but visiting it - fantastic thanks to a great guide: OLGA ESCRIBANO. If you are visiting Barcelona, then only with her. He has knowledge, passion and can build tension and stories. By the way, he excellently tells about painting, how to read art. Great guide and man.
Guide explained every detail about the life and work of the artist Picasso. It was full of facts, anecdotes and other details we might not have noticed by looking at the paintings. Excellent guide!
Marc who was our guide was great, very passionate and with extensive knowledge. I stroniły recommend to visit the muzeum with the guide.
