If you're interested in seeing quality Barcelona art from local artists then it's recommended you make your way to Plaça St Josep Oriol, a square which is right next door to Plaça Del Pi in the heart of the Gothic Quarter. Plaça del Pi is only a few minutes walk from the famous La Rambla so you will have no problem in finding these squares.

In the square you will find up to 50 artists displaying portfolios of their work on Saturdays (11:00 - 20:00) and Sundays (11:00 - 14:00). These artists are members of the Associacio de Pintors de Barcelona (Barcelona Painters Association).

Barcelona City Pass

The styles of paintings vary considerably from traditional landscapes or portrait work right through to some more abstract paintings. I was impressed by both the quality of the work and the range of different styles available.

I spoke to a few of the painters that were displaying their art, and it was clear they were passionate about their work. One of the advantages of visiting this venue is that you will have an opportunity to meet the artists that have created the works. I found them open and friendly people who were willing to take the time out to speak with you.

Our Insider Tip

When purchasing your artwork remember to ask the artist for their business card. You might find that once you return home, you may wish to purchase more works from the same artist when you see just how much your lounge wall will be illuminated by this colourful and original artwork.

Prices for the Barcelona Art displayed vary considerably.

Plaça del Pi is a beautiful little square that is home to the Church Iglesia del Pi. The Word "Pi" means "pine" and in the square you will see an old pine tree from which the square, the street and church take their names. Both squares also have a few atmospheric coffee shops where you can sit down and watch the World go by.

The Gothic quarter, in which these two squares are situated, has connections with great artists and was once home to one of Picasso's early art studios and was also the neighbourhood in which Joan Miró was brought up as a young boy. Visiting these squares when the artists are displaying their work adds something special to the atmosphere and is highly recommended if you are an art lover or if you simply want to soak up the creative atmosphere that these two squares offer you.
