In the lofty former Bishop’s Palace, the Museu d’Art houses an impressive collection of Catalan art from the Romanesque and Gothic to the twentieth century. The most remarkable exhibits are a tenth-century portable altar from Sant Pere de Rodes, one of the very few preserved in Europe, and a minutely detailed twelfth-century crossbeam from
the church at Cruïlles. An extensive collection of religious art includes the unique fourteenth-century stencils used to make the cathedral’s stained-glass windows. The museum also boasts some wonderful works by nineteenth- and twentieth-century Catalan Impressionists, notably the landscapes of Joaquim Vayreda and the dreamy scenes of Girona by Santiago Rusiñol.
