It's easy to find the big museums in any city, in any country, but the smaller and quirkier sometimes go unnoticed. And every now and then, someone points out a few good ones.
This time, it's news site TheLocal.es that has put together a selection of Spain's oddball museums that may interest you on your next trip. Here are a few:
- Ciudad Rodrigo, near Salamanca, has a museum of urinals and chamber pots
- Barcelona has a museum dedicated to hearses and funeral coaches (image above)
- Girona has a forest of erotic sculptures created by sculptor Xicu Cabanyes
- Guadalest has two on the list: a museum of salt and pepper shakers, and a museum dedicated to the works of a microminiaturist who has reproduced huge paintings on a grain of rice.
If you have the time, you could make an entire itinerary from the list!
