Art that's free to see

Barcelona is bursting with galleries showing off photos, sculpture, paintings and more – all for free

Everywhere you go in Barcelona you're treated to free art, with Modernist buildings, especially those of you-know-who, dotted around town. Museums filled with collections of all kinds are also abundant. But don't miss out on the city's free galleries, where you can feast your eyes on photos, sculptures, paintings, furniture... And if you're tired of all this free stuff, you might even take home an original piece if the mood strikes.
