Have a seat on a marble bench next to Pablo Ruiz Picasso. The famous painter and innovator of the Cubist movement was born in 1881 a few steps away in Casa Natal at Plaza de la Merced, 15. His boyhood home is a museum containing furnishing and personal effects of the Picasso family. Museo Casa Natal de Picasso also exhibits some of his and his father’s art plus work by over 200 other artists. This bronze sculpture of Picasso was created by Francisco López Hernández in 2008.
