Galleria Continua information
It may seem strange to highlight contemporary art in this medieval time capsule of a town, but there's good reason. Galleria Continua is one of the best commercial art galleries in Europe, showing the work of big-name artists such as Ai Weiwei, Daniel Buren, Carlos Garaicoa, Moataz Nasr, Kendell Geers and Sophie Whettnall.
