This shoe museum is a real hidden gem. While it is small, it is really interesting. For anyone who lives shoes, you must visit.

Tucked away in a lovely courtyard near the Catedral de Barcelona is this tiny musuem of shoes. How do we think we have invented any new designs?? The host was charming - very proud of the displays - I bought 2 posters of shoes (my grandfather was a cobbler). It was an enjoyable visit in an enjoyable day!

Besides enjoying the little adorable museum - the location was great - it was fun finding it and when we arrived, it is in a small courtyard where local little children were getting out of school. the entire experience was charming!

Not big, but good enough collection will be interesting for those who are interested in history of fashion. And there is a shoe made for the statue of Colombus on Mirador de Colom))

2.5 euro (may 2014) for a single room (pretty small). Includes shoes from the 17,18 and 19 century. Cute, not more

This little museo is cheap (2.5 euro) & charming. it sits in a perfect small courtyard behind the catedral & is served by a tiny, ancient attendant who offers sporadic quiet comments in castelano about the various exhibits. It's quiet & quaint, inexpensive, & a respite from the bustle of the old town. Would I fly to Barcelona for it,... More

This is a sweet little trip through the history of shoes. Having visited more 'high fashion' shoe exhibitions this was a bit more old school but a worthy distraction nonetheless. Situated in a lovely courtyard with a dedicated attendent, you can see examples of shoes from Roman times through the Victorian ages up until the modern day. Don't get too... More
