It houses the work of the painter after whom the museum is named, which he donated to the Principality of Asturias

The Barjola Museum occupies the former Trinidad Complex, formed by the Jove Mansion, of which it retains barely the main façade, and the Trinity Chapel, a fantastic example of 17th-century Gijón Baroque, the façade and main structure of which the museum does still preserve.

The museum has four floors, with a large entrance hall to observe and enjoy the full height and luminosity of the building. The work of Juan Barjola, centred between the mid-1950s and late 80s, is exhibited on the three upper floors. The oldest paintings are displayed on the top floor. The ground floor serves as the setting for one of the great paintings in the exhibition, "The Other Wailing Wall", as well as housing the museum reception and offices.

Temporary exhibitions are held in the Trinity Chapel, with special attention to sculpture.

PERMANENT EXHIBITIONS
The work donated to the Principality of Asturias by the painter from Extremadura Juan Barjola. The work of Juan Barjola, centred between the mid-1950s and late 80s, is exhibited on the three upper floors. The oldest paintings are displayed on the top floor, except for a self-portrait from 1950, which can be seen in the lobby. The work corresponding to the 60s and, above all, that of the prolific 80s, is exhibited on the first and second floors. The work entitled "The Other Wailing Wall" is located on the ground floor.

TEMPORARY EXHIBITIONS
The museum holds about 6 sculpture exhibitions a year, as well as other, more local activities such as: The Comic Book Salon or Philatelic Fairs.
