    Very cozy and educational place. Been there for more than an hour, and could spend even more. Most exciting pieces of photo and cinema equipment. Some interactive features. Very detailed explanation, and terrific idea with audio guide on your own smartphone. Enjoyed every part of the main exhibit and clearly will try to bring my kids here.

    This is a very well done, small museum exploring the Jewish history in Girona. We were lucky to also have a tour guide and then walk the streets that used to be the Jewish quarter. It is a sad but fascinating part of the history of Girona.

    Girona Art Museum is a cultural delight. The diverse collection spans centuries, showcasing local and international art. The architecture and well-curated exhibits offer a captivating experience. While informative, a touch more interactivity could engage visitors.

    Fortunate to have a superb setting of the former Monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants that may well have origins back to the 10th century. It is regarded as being one of the most exceptional examples of Romanesque architecture.

    Occupying the church and tranquil cloister, the artefact collections are well worth perusing. One of the most extensive covers Palaeolithic times, with many examples of stone and bone tools and materials.

    Exhibitions progress till more recent centuries with an interesting catalogue.

    Casa Masó is the creation of Rafael Masó, it is one of his works of architecture and the only one open to the public on the river in Girona. The house retains Nosentist-era furniture and finishes and offers unparalleled views of the city.

    This is an extremely peculiar museum. For English speaking tourists it's in two parts, unintentionally or not. Half of it is translated into English so you know what the myriad of exhibits are. The rest isn't. This is a shame as there are some interesting exhibits, including children's drawings from the civil war. Still worth a visit with basic language knowledge, Google Translate and some patience. Disappointingly the most impressive Roman mosaic was closed off despite good English language commentary.

    This museum is from the cathedral’s treasury collection. It is included with the price of admission to the attached cathedral. There are three rooms - the most noteworthy pieces are described in the audio guide which is provided upon admission to the cathedral. Be sure to head to the last room where the beautifully massive Tapestry of the Creation is on display.

    In a historic building this progressive gallery has an absorbing repertoire of art pieces.

    Comprising predominantly artists from the region, it is a vital showcase of what's the best in contemporary times.

    It was good to see many of the oeuvres had a red sticker attached, indicating their sale. Most satisfying and essential for the artists.

    This is a superb city to wander through. A true step back in time.
    The buildings are well preserved as are all the alleys. Great shopping if you are in the mood.

    This palace was built in the traditions of medieval architecture. Although in my opinion, the facade of the building is more than modest. But since it is located opposite the cathedral, the place is one of the most visited. This palace belonged to an aristocratic family and is now a center of contemporary art.

    Close to the former grand old Hospital, from which it takes its name, it is an impressive modern cultural centre.

    Museums and art spaces provide an interesting variety of engaging exhibitions.

    Seeing to the medical needs of the people from the late 1600s till about twenty years ago, it has been repurposed marvellously to serve further needs in the 21st century.

    One such is housing the city’s Delegation of the Government of the Generalitat of Catalonia. A fine performance venue, Auditori Josep Irla, is here.

    Also present are a couple of museums, including notably a grand Baroque Pharmacy.
