Despite its small size, the Catalan city of Girona has one art museum, a couple of art centres and some smaller galleries to browse. Here’s our list of some of the best, from contemporary art spaces to small galleries, where you can buy pieces to take home with you.

CaixaForum – Fontana d'Or

Housed in the medieval National Historic Monument building Fontana d’Or, the Girona CaixaForum is more than just a gallery; it’s a whole arts centre. As well as changing art exhibitions, it’s a space for performance, concerts and workshops. When in Girona, it’s worth a visit to discover what fascinating exhibits might be taking place.

El Bòlit Centre d'Art Contemporani


El Bòlit Centre d’Art Contemporani, inaugurated in 2008, is a cultural centre that aims to promote contemporary art in the city through a number of exhibitions, activities and workshops. The centre showcases work from local, national and international talents, and it has so far held 21 different exhibitions. As well as the main centre on Rambla de la Libertat, the centre has two other buildings – one in Sant Nicolau Church and one in La Carbonera.

Girona’s biggest and most important art museum is the Museu d’Art de Girona, housed in the city’s old Episcopal Palace, dating back to between the 12th and 16th centuries. A classic art museum, its collection includes more than 8,000 pieces from the Greek period through to the 20th century, as well as one of the most extensive collections of Romanesque and Gothic art in the province of Girona.

Galeria Riera

Located in the Old Town of Girona, Galeria Riera is housed in the 12th-century Hospital de Capellans. Promoting the work of local Catalan artists, it showcases all types of art but focuses specifically on painting. Artists featured here include Joan Mateu, who paints very life-like pictures of places around the Costa Brava, and Sergi Cadenas, who paints 3D oil paintings of faces on flat surfaces.

Galeria d'Art El Claustre

Galeria d’Art El Claustre sits in the historic heart of the city and occupies three buildings, all next door to each other. It showcases a variety of both modern and historic art exhibitions mostly in the mediums of painting and sculpture.

A glass workshop and gallery, Nou Taller de Vidre offers something a little different than your usual art gallery. Filled with delicate pieces in bright colours, this is the place for anyone who wants to learn more about the process of glass blowing or wants to buy a unique souvenir or gift to take home.

Dual Galeria d'Art

Art Gallery

The newest art gallery in the city, Dual Galeria d’Art only opened at the end of 2016. Exhibiting the works of local artists, it showcases smaller affordable paintings and sculptures on the ground floor and larger scale, more expensive artworks in the basement.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
