    This place is on la rambla and is a free exposition of "things" it's a quaint small exposition that is well worth a look. I suspect it will change to something else soon. Worth a look.

    Sono stata alla mostra d'arte con due amiche. Unici aspetti positivo l'aria condizionata e l'ingresso gratuito. Poco chiaro l'intento della mostra, opere mostra in questione è di Paula Rego.

    Next to the now permanently packed Boqueria market is the beautiful late 18th century Palau (palace) de la Virreina, (named after the wife of a Spanish Viceroy of Peru), an old mansion converted into a cultural centre dedicated mostly to images and photography. It currently houses an excellent retrospective exhibition of Italian artist Ketty la Rocca. Visits are free and strongly recommended to visitors who wish to take a rest from the overcrowded Rambla.

    Great place to visit, nice interesting exhibitions from great (not very well-known) artists. The free guided tour of the gallery is highly recommendable, although they don't publicised it well enough.

    Se trata de una sala donde se suele exponer arte en formato fotográfico o ciclos temáticos. El edificio es un antiguo palacio, perfectamente conservado. Está ubicado en el centro de Barcelona y la entrada es siempre gratuita. La calidad de las exposiciones, bajo mi punto de vista es extrema, o son extremadamente buenas o extremadamente flojas, sea como sea, sin duda merece la pena conocer.

    Der Palau de la Virreina steht im Herzen der Innenstadt von Barcelona auf dem Prachtboulevard Las Ramblas in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Palau Moja. Vom Placa de Catalyna aus ist man zu Fuß in weniger als fünf Minuten hier. Bei unserem Besuch am frühen Abend wurde das Gebäude bereits wunderbar angestrahlt. Allein dieser Anblick ist einen Besuch wert. Man aber auch kostenlos in das Gebäude gehen und sich die wechselnden Kunstausstellungen anschauen. Bei uns waren es riesige farbenfrohe Puppen, die uns viel Freude bereitet haben. Fazit: Bei einem Bummel entlang der Rambla sollte man auch hier kurz einkehren. Es lohnt sich.

    С интересом во время своих барселонских прогулок рассмотрели этот симпатичный дворец - дворец Виррейна, построенный в XVIII веке для супруги вице-короля Перу... Здание, безусловно, является существенной городской достопримечательностью и классическим образцом строения в стиле барокко... Ныне дворец используется в качестве выставочного центра современного искусства... Осмотрели одну бесплатную экспозицию творений современных художников: сам дворец понравился больше...

    C’est un très beau musée de style baroque avec des grands escaliers dans sa cour intérieure. Le nom vient de la vice-reine Maria Francesca de Fiveller i de Bru, veuve du vice-roi du Pérou. L’entrée est gratis (photos interdites). Dans un cadre reposant se tiennent actuellement 2 Expositions au "Centre de la Imatge" (jusqu’au 5/2/2017), l'une sur Alexander Kluge et l'autre sur Copi (Raul Damonte Botana), énormément de dessins humoristiques, un régal !

    Si vuelves a pasar, entra hasta el patio central por favor, los espacios interiores ahora son exposiciones pero ya el patio central es admirable, tiene 14 columnas corintias con 10 ventanales impresionantes.-Es de aquellos lugares que a veces no ves pero que tienen un encanto particular para los amantes del Arte como yo.-

    Actualmente (medianos de noviembre 2016), en el Palau de la Virreina,están funcionando dos exposiciones muy interesantes, que si no surgen cambios estarán visitables hasta principios de febrero 2017. El espacio, como Centro de la Imagen, que es, muestra una extraordinaria muestra de Alexander Kluge (con audiovisuales creados expresamente para el evento).Muy interesante. Ademas, puede visitarse otra muestra, en este caso de Copi. Magnificas viñetas.

    es un edificio precioso, situado en las ramblas justo al lado de la Boqueria, siempre realizan exposiciones super interesantes, pueden ser exposiciones de artes plasticas, pinturas, historicas, fotograficas etc, ademas las exposiciones suelen ser gratuitas, vale la pena consultar en su pagina web y verificar la exposición del momento y si es de tu agrado no dejes de ir, vale la pena.

    The images were undoubtedly interesting and I'm generally happy I visited because I learnt much. However, given the informative nature of the exhibition, the communication is done terribly. The image descriptions look like a puzzle and it takes much time to figure out which description belongs to which image. Such images are not always observed for their artistic beauty, but rather for the information they transmit, therefore it is important to make sure that this information is given to the visitors in a better way rather than sticking an A4 paper on the wall which tells about 15 photos at once. Would have been so much better if each photo had its own description written underneath. Please, consider improving the communication strategy. The videos shown in the screening areas were very interesting too.

    Fecha visita: 25/06/2016 Lugar: Palau de la Virreina Este edificio a pesar de estar en pleno centro de las Ramblas, donde pasan cada día miles de personas, no es precisamente muy conocido ni concurrido. En su interior suelen haber exposiciones relacionadas con la temática de la imagen y creo recordar que la entrada es gratuita.

    El Palau de la Virreina es un palacio situado en la Rambla de Barcelona. Está considerado uno de los mejores exponentes del barroco aplicado a la arquitectura civil de Catalunya. En su suntuoso interior destaca el espacioso vestíbulo abovedado. Es la sede actual del Instituto de Cultura de Ayuntamiento de Barcelona, estando tambien ubicado allí el Centro de la Imagen. La entrada és libre.

    Недалеко от бульвара Рамбла проходили красивое здание в стиле барокко – Дворец Виррейна. Дворец построен в XVIII веке как резиденция вице-короля Перу – маркиза Мануэля де Амата. Так как впоследствии здесь проживала его вдова, дом получил своё название – Дворец вице-королевы (Palau de la Virreina). На сегодняшний день используется в качестве выставочного центра: здесь проводятся выставки современного искусства, ежегодный конкурс фотографии. Вход бесплатный.

    A plaza de Virreina é um local não muito turístico de Barcelona que merece uma visita. É uma das jóias da Graciá que vale a pena ser visitada.

    The March-June 2016 programme: Barcelona, admission free, The Metropolis in the Age of Photography, 1860-2004, is an incredibly well curated and comprehensive pictorial history. The hanging is excellent, the movie clips well chosen and the original documents reek of the pathos of things past. The selection courageously includes photographs (mostly original prints) and film from the general strike, the civil war and the dictatorship. There are also original 19c prints (albumen, silver, etc) of the periods of major redevelopment. Photos of the demolition and building activities are backed up by the original plans to demolish swathes of higgledy-piggledy streets to be replaced by wide boulevards & impressive facades indicating Barcelona's new industrial status. Barcelona was well photographed from the 1850's onwards. Some visitors were visibly moved by the material. Residents and visitors to the city, especially those interested in political and social history should make time yo see this exhibition. Admission is free!

    Palau de la Virreina is a lovely building situated on La Rambla. Well worth a visit if you are walking down La Rambla.

    Really interesting exhibit showcasing the struggles of the Chinese nation, their lack of freedom and the heavy laws imposed by its government. Anyone in Barcelona should prioritize this exhibit as it gives us an insight into a nation "protected" by barriers that crunches its citizens. La Palau de la Virreina is a stunning building along Las Ramblas, which is open to the public. If I am not mistaken, the exhibit will be in the Palau de la Virreina until February, 2015.
