Owner description: 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.

“A charming small scale museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

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 yourself.

“Impressive Gothic Art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

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 pieces. The most impressive part of the museum was the Gothic and Baroque art, so if you prefer more contemporary art, you might be disappointed as the collection isn't so large. We did this museum in about an hour and a half and really enjoyed it.

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.
