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.

Fantastic old building. Decent collection. Don't bother with the audioguide - the list of selected works and some postings in English give enough information. This museum has some displays that add interest; for example, pigment sources and how stained glass is made.

It is always nice to see art by those other than the big generally recognised names. There are some really interesting pieces here and there are certainly a lot of them! What was particularly nice was a small exhibition of paint colours and the items they are made from. Just a pity that the only language is Catalan, makes it... More

A great building and excellent collection of medieval religious and some more recent (well 19th century) paintings. Some wonderful stonework too, and other wooden statues. Easiest way is to go towards the toilet area, catch the lift to the 5th floor and work your way back down. Don't miss the prison (preso) in room 11, with the 300 year old... More

Not for the unsteady on their feet! This museum has an extraordinary collection of ecclesiastical art but it's stored over several floors and you will need to be fairly mobile to enjoy the experience but it's worth a visit for sure.

A great use of an Old Building, the museum houses artwork and the tools used to produce them, It may not have the big names, however, personally I found it quite interesting and entertaining.

You can easily miss the entrance to this museum but it is right next to the Cathedral. The art is mostly religious but I found it frustrating that there were no descriptions in English! After reading a previous review about not missing the prison, we didn't even know there was a prison to see, so yes - we missed it!... More

Tucked away behind the Cathedral is the Art Museum which really traces the development of local art from the Visigoths to the present day. The best of this is alter pieces from various churches but there is an interesting range from Spanish artists you are likely to be less familiar with.

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
