Corunna for many visitors is a town to discover in its different expressions; the beach, its art-deco buildings, its roman past..But, something that many do not know is the fact that Pablo Picasso lived and started his career as a worldwide known painter in this town back in 1891.

His family moved from Malaga – a sunny town in Andalusia in southern Spain – to  Corunna back in 1891. José Ruiz – his father – had achieved an important responsibility in the brand new local School of Arts, Eusebio da Guarda.

It is in these streets that Pablo created his very first portraits of beggars,old men and street life. it is here where he made his first friends and even had his teenage love.

In this Private Tour we will visit along with the late XIX century streets – Calle Real, Cantones and Plaza de Lugo – the most famous spots associated to the Artist, walking in the alleys and roads that he saw and culminating at the Picasso House Museum where he and his family lived until 1895, these days a museum.

Do join me in this experience that always has some nice surprise.
