It can also be accessed from: St Llorenç de Morunys (by La Coma and La Pedra), by El Port del Compte (coming from Solsona) and coming from La Seu d'Urgell. These three routes pass by the villages of Tuixén and Josa del Cadí.
Gosol's emblematic cultural institution is the Picasso Museum, which owes its existence to the visit of Pablo Picasso to the village in the spring of 1906, which lasted until the first half of August. The artist installed himself at the only inn then in existence, Cal Tampanada. While in Gósol, Picasso underwent a transformation. His palette, his sketching style and his rhythm of composition all changed. He used Fernande Olivier (his partner at the time), the village, the people of the area, and the livestock as models for his artwork.
