The south turn of Gósol

Picasso's stay in Gósol for two and a half months in the spring of 1906 marked the Malagan artist forever.

This stage was not only decisive for his artistic pursuit, but also a signal of the subsequent evolution of 20th-century pictorial art. It is well known that the trip from Guardiola to Gósol strongly impressed the artist and his partner Fernande Olivier.

It is also known that Picasso often wandered around the roads to capture landscapes for painting.

This route covers much of the sections that Picasso and his partner made to reach Gósol, but also makes a tour of some of the valleys and ridges on the southern slope of Gósol where Picasso was sure to have strolled, in a proposal that offers some magnificent discoveries.
