Impressive mix between the classic and the contemporary. An old hospital from XVIII Century contains works by Picasso, Juan Gris, Dalí, and many others. Come to discover how XX Century changed society and art.

The external glass elevators serve as a viewing platform. At the main entrance we find as well the sculpture "the Spanish people have a path that leads to a star" about the Spanish civil war.
Together we will go through the different artistic movements of contemporary art, cubism, Dadaism, surrealism... with artists like Picasso, Joan Miró, Dalí... and we have the opportunity to contemplate the masterpiece of the museum, "Guernica".
We will finish the tour at the museum but you can continue on your own discovering the rest of the museum.

In just two hours Leire managed to use key pieces of art and here encyclopedic knowledge of the modern art movement to prepare us to view Picasso's Guernica thoughtfully. Having a better understanding of the movements of cubism, and surrealism helped place the work and its style in context. She also took time to introduce us to some lesser known works that were cutting edge for their time by artists who are just beginning to be more deeply studied. All 5 of us came to the tour with different backgrounds and she made each person feel appreciated for their perspective. I highly recommend Leire as a guide - it made the whole experience richer and we learned so much.
Thank you! It was a pleasure being with you, I felt very comfortable . I´m very happy that you enjoyed the tour. I hope to see your again!! thanks for everything!
