Para entrar en La Coruña de Pablo Picasso, después de dejar la zona del puerto de Coruña, comenzamos el recorrido a pie desde María Pita, famosa plaza del ayuntamiento. Caminamos por las calles comerciales de finales del siglo XIX de Coruña, como la Calle Real, donde en 1895 Picasso expuso sus primeros cuadros. Pocos metros más y vemos la farmacia aún existente a la que Pablo Picasso solía ir porque uno de sus amigos vive en el primer piso. Algunos dicen que la placa que recordaba al general británico John Moore fue una inspiración para él de viajar a Londres. Luego eligió París. La plaza Plaza de Lugo nos da la oportunidad, entre semana, de ingresar al animado mercado local de comida tradicional. No muy lejos, en la calle Payo Gómez, llegamos a la Casa Museo Picasso. Después de una visita que revelará más historias sobre la familia Picasso en Coruña, regresaremos a la zona del puerto.
