Centre Picasso


The Picasso Centre of Gósol is located in the middle of the village, in the main square, next to Cal Tampanada, where it is easy to imagine the genius. This small space has the most representative display of the three hundred and two works attributed to the period of the artist in Gosól. The originals are in different museums in Europe and the United States, but only here can you link the works with the landscape  that surrounded -and surely inspired- Picasso in 1906.

Gósol inspired Picasso, and as a result of this renovation, works such as "Young woman of Gósol", "Head of Young Man from Gósol" and the enigmatic "Woman with Loaves", a work reproduced in the Square of Gósol as a statue and which inspired all sorts of legends around Picasso's stay in the village. The Pedraforca also seduced the genius, the works "Fernande with a black mantilla" and "Fernande on a mule" show the emblematic mountain. To contemplate the works of Picasso with their real-life backgrounds is doubtlessly a unique experience.

But in the Centre, you can find valuable objects such as the notebook where he constantly recorded details he saw, a collection of old photographs of Gósol or the everyday furnishings of the time. In short, an approximation to the summer of 1906. But, the arrival in the village has nothing to do with the route on the steam train to Guardiola, where there is still a stretch to do on foot following the royal road until you arrive in Gósol. And this is the route of Picasso and Fernande. And that is how they will leave, just as they had arrived, this time on foot through the Pas dels Gosolans crossing the Cadí mountain range. Even today, many inhabitants of Gósol have anecdotes as well as legends full of mysticism about the stay of the genius, who changed their lives.
