Here's the Scoop on where to buy art in Barcelona

On artsy drag c/ Enric Granados and all about the Eixample there are fine art galleries displaying color-splashed canvasses and six-digit price tags. While these are fantastic places to splurge on art they may exceed most people’s budget. The Scoop on art in Barcelona is to head not to Las Ramblas, but to Pl. del Pi on a Saturday morning for the artists’ market.

The art at Pl. del Pi varies from so-so to fabulous and there are some real deals to be had. Some artists offer cityscapes and renderings of life in Barcelona, which I think make great gifts or souvenirs. Also, the person who sells you artwork at Pl. del Pi is usually the artist, which is fun because you know you are buying from the source and supporting the creative process, which can be a hard one at times. The artists who come to Pi are, in my opinion, better than those on Las Ramblas who are more commercial.

In the cobblestoned zone that surrounds the artist’ market there are tons of boutique shops and snug cafes. This is one of the top places in old town Barcelona to go shopping.

What: Local Artwork straight from the source

When: Saturday mornings

Where: Barri Gotic’s Pl del Pi

Price: Depends on how many paintings you take home, but they start around €15.00
