Then we travel to the mountain village of Gosol nestled in the Pyreens in the footssteps of famous painter Picasso who arrived by mule 100 years ago and spent a summer capturing the picturesque village and splendid mountains landscapes on canvas. In Gosol we visit the ruins of the 13th century castle and medieval village, the Picasso centre and enjoy lunch in the village square.
