Hardly one of Picasso's best monumental works.Kristineham has chosen to rank this as one of the city's biggest attractions. The road out along the water is bordered by simple holiday homes and nice newly built villas.

If you're staying in Kristinehamn it's worth a visit. You have to drive though (free parking) as it's 6 miles down the lake. It was just designed by Picasso not constructed by him. One of his Swedish acolytes made it.

A nice place for picnic. A cafe with coffea and icecream in the summer. Always a lot of people visiting.

The sculpture is interesting, but not exactly pretty, however the surrounding area is beautiful and great for a walk. There is also somewhere to grab a bite to eat or get ice creams. It made for a nice day out.

It is just on the lake, and it is a very tall and impressive sculpture. It has Nice surrondings, and it is possible to have something to eat at a local cafe nearby and Nice walking area.

Kristinehamn doesn’t have much out of the ordinary but this sculpture design by Picasso is this summer celebrating 50 years.

This piece of art might seem so modern you can't even see what it looks like, but once you start walking the lakesida you will soon realise this Picasso sculpture is depicting a truly beautiful woman, namely one of the artist's wives. It's actually a...More

The sculpture and its story of how it ended up in Kristinehamn is worth the drive out there from the city center. The surrounding area is beautiful in the summer but I doubt it has any redeeming features on a dark winter day. The sculpture...More

I went there on the spur of the moment with my girlfriend and we both found the place very pleasant and quiet. The sculpture itself fits really well in the décor of the location. I have to admit that I spent more time looking at...More
