From what we have seen, the Palazzo itself has nothing spectacular inside. The outside is interestingly unusual. The real treat was the exhibition on Catalan artistes, which is unfortunately closed by the time you read these lines !

I didn't visit the main exhibition but the gallery is nice. It has a few nice paintings. A lovely cool space on a hot day.

The LA Rosa di Fuoco, LA Barcelona di Picasso and Gaudi here is sensational and not to be missed. Wonderful lasting memories of this exhibition. No air-conditioning in main building but some for the special exhibition.

Located on the ground floor of the Palazzo this is a surprisingly good exhibition of work done at the end of the 19th Century and early 20th Century. There are some lovely paintings by Casas and some interesting poster advertisements of the same period. Definitely worth a visit whilst this is on.

Characterized by front walls made of marble stones shaped as diamonds, this museum accomodates almost continuously very interesting and prestigious paintings exhibitions. On weekends it is recommendable to book the visit online in advance to get faster admission.

The special exhibit was small and only so-so, while the permanent exhibit was much larger and more interesting, although not great.This museum is not included... More
