The cathedral (well really complex treasury, cathedral, and cloisters) is a must visit, its very impressive and has been at the centre of the town for centuries - as a Roman temple, Romanesque Churn and the current medieval cathedral. I thought that at €7 entry including audio guide its decent value.

LIKED. Old Town narrow alleyways, City Walls Cathedral. Walk the city walls, 2 km, for a stunning view over this enchanting city.

If you like visiting old churches, go there! It's unique. Beautiful square in front with a great view on Girona. The interior is gothic, huge, wide, elegant and impressive. Also visit the cloister and the treasury. In the treasury you see a unique 11th century tapestry depicting the creation of the world.

Interesting place to visit and steeped in history. Worth a visit, although disappointing that absolutely no photography allowed. Don't forget to check out the Creation Tapestry.

Had an afternoon trip to Girona from Tossa de Mar and didn't know what to expect, wow, were we treated to something really special. The guide took us through the streets ( which were rich in history ) explaining several of the sights and then we were gifted with this amazing sight in front of the Cathedral, so imposing in...

Awesome interior space and enchanting cloister. Interesting museum with enormous and mysterious tapestry and gorgeous illuminated manuscripts. . Free on Sundays, by the way.

We didn't expect much from just another regional cathedral but we were absolutely blown away by this one. The area it's in is beautiful for a start. There is a nice old courtyard & a small museum of the bishops gowns going back hundreds of years but all pales into insignificance compared to inside the cathedral itself. It's absolutely huge....

This is one of the great Gothic cathedrals of Spain. It's not as flamboyant as some but its redolent with history (being based on the temple of the Roman forum) and its nave alone is worth seeing. Small but impressive treasury and delightful cloisters make it a very good value for money visit at €7 (incl. Sant Feliu). By the... More

It's an awesome and quiet place to visit if you like architecture, history and cathedrals. The actual cathedral itself is free. But if you want to go to the museum, there is a charge.

Girona Cathedral is an awesome place not only from the inside but also from the outside. It is situated on a hill and this provides a very good view of the city of Girona
