Although Pablo Picasso lived in France for much of his adult life, it’s impossible to understate the influence of his Spanish upbringing on his art. To gain some insight into the exiled champion of cubism, neo-classicism, and surrealism, here at Totally Spain we highly recommend a trip to Malaga, Barcelona & Madrid. That’s where you can visit the places that meant so much to him and see some of his iconic works such as ‘Guernica’ in person.
