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.
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.
