The Picasso Museum contains over three thousand paintings by the Big Guy.
If a Picasso original isn’t in your budget, The Picasso Museum Store, located in the same group of medieval buildings, has a large stock of framed and unframed prints.
This diverse Barcelona shop is worth a stop just to view the arched stone ceilings with their wooden beams. If George Bush ever traveled outside the US he’d shop here. The long wiggly pencils, key chains, and magnets would appeal to him.
Fine jewelry, scarves, and an excellent selection of books for children and adults are for sale. You get to buy cool stuff and support the arts. No admission charge to go to the Museum Store. Lines are long. Get there early.
