Museu Diocesà de Barcelona

Museum
The Museu Diocesà opened its doors after a long process of renovation with a new area dedicated to one of the great architects and creators of the history of humanity: Antoni Gaudí. Thanks to the most modern technology the exhibition offers an innovative virtual tour.

The Barcelona Diocesan Museum is located in the historic building of Pia Almoina, in Plaza de la Catedral. It is a construction with a Gothic body dating back to 1435 and another, Renaissance in style, added in 1546.

The museum's collection is the result of the donation of works of art by the parishes in the Barcelona Diocese. It includes paintings, sculptures, gold work, fabrics, clothing and numismatics ranging from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. The main theme is religious, and is the common denominator of all the pieces.

The collection includes true masterpieces. Of particular relevance are the works from the Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque periods. Some of them are outstanding examples of the art of their period. Amongst others it is worth highlighting the mural paintings by Polinyà, from the 12th century; the carving of the Virgin of Santa Maria de Toudell or the silver Romanesque cross by Riells del Fai.

The museum is distributed over seven rooms. The permanent exhibition occupies part of these rooms. The rest are dedicated to temporary exhibitions related to the most diverse artistic ideas. All of this is further enhanced with the added historical value of the visit to the building itself.
