A virtual tour is also available via a mobile phone app created by the Miró Foundation
Where was Joan Miró born? Where did he work? What parts of Barcelona did he frequent? The Barcelona Miró Tour revisits all the pertinent city locations in the life of the Catalan painter. Miró’s relationship with Barcelona was one of intimacy and proximity. He was born here, he studied here, he worked here and it was here that he cultivated friendships that would last throughout his lifetime.
The house where he was born, in the Passatge del Crèdit, the Llotja Fine Arts School, to Ciutat Vella, Avinguda del Paral·lel, the Ciutadella Museum of Fine Arts and the chemists and pharmaceutical manufacturers, Dalmau Oliveres – all had an influence on the artistic and personal development of Joan Miró.
To take the tour, participants can either start out from the Miró Foundation building (seen on the map) or take a virtual tour using the Joan Miró mobile phone app, which is available for Apple and Android. In addition to the principal locations, a series of secondary spots provide a further insight into aspects of the painter’s life. In all, a tour that combines art and technology and highlights both the key locations in the life of the Barcelona-born artist as well as other places of historical interest.
