Girona Art Museum is located in the incomparable setting of the former Bishop’s Palace, a building first documented in the 10th century. It now houses the most important art collection in Girona province, with pieces dating from Romanesque times to the early 20th century.The building still conserves several spaces that bear witness to its original function, notably the Episcopal gaol and the superb garden, open to the public on several occasions throughout the year.

I managed to arrive at a time when the museum was almost empty. I took a quick look at the displays though 5 floors, and then settled on the 4th floor to prioritize where I wanted to spend time. One item that piqued my attention was the room called "Discovery point" on the 5th floor. I popped my head into... More

I am very interested in art but this gallery was almost totally of religious art- I do not know if the artists of Girona only did religious works.

Lovely building with too many stairs, though there was a lift which we used to go to the top then worked our way down. The exhibits are arranged historically though so if you do that then you're working your way backwards. The first 3 floors are mostly religeous works, carvings and paintings that you would expect to find in churches... More

I think this art museum would be perfect for someone very interested in art and perhaps religious art. I went with friends who loved it. I dont know if Girona, Spain is the place to see amazing masterpieces

Sorry, apart from the moderns I don't find Spain a great place to see art. Lots here in the "curiosity" category rather than "masterpiece".

The Girona Art Museum is just by the Cathedral in Barri Vell and is absolutely worth a visit. The museum itself is charmingly restored to house a collection of Gothic sculptures, paintings and other objects that help tell the story of Girona and Catalunya. The staff are helpful and welcoming in this little gem of a museum, go and enjoy... More

This museum is located right next to the Cathedral and has great views of it if you peek out the windows. The entrance fee is cheap (we paid 2 euros each). You start on the first floor with religious art from the 10th-14th centuries, then move your way up to the fifth floor that has some 19th an 20th century... More

Special museum in a special building next to Girona's famous Cathedral. Go and have a look and see what art people were making hundreds of year's ago.
