Gaudí Exhibition Center-Museu Diocesà

The Pia Almoina building, a national landmark housed in the Roman wall of the city next to the cathedral, is home to the Museu Diocesà, with its faithfully restored interior.

The Museu Diocesà, which incorporates the 4th-century Roman tower and city walls, brings together a collection of over 3,000 works of art, including sculptures, paintings, gold and silverware, ceramics, and a variety of religious clothing, with important examples from the Visigothic and Roman era until the 21st century.

Gaudí Exhibition Center-Diocesan Museum, featuring the "Walking with Gaudí" exhibition, a unique collection of pieces, objects and original documents by the brilliant, world-renowned architect. The exhibition showcases almost a century of international research on Gaudí: the man himself, his work and his revolutionary working methods.

The tour includes an audio-guide plus technological and multimedia support to give a greater understanding of Antoni Gaudí as an artist, and how and why he executed his works.
