Adult price is 7eu and student price is 5eu. This includes an audio-guide telling the history of the cathedral and some stories about the saints it is dedicated to.

I always visit the cathedrals in cities visited as each one has a history and a uniqueness. Girona no exception. The cloisters were also good but star .attraction was the museum attached to the Cathedral. Beautifully displayed items, paintings and church treasures, but importantly the Creation Taperstry. A beautiful treasure and a privilege to have seen it.

We climbed all around the old city and were glad we stopped in to see the cathedral. It's size alone is impressive. We sat on the steps of the cathedral one weekend night when there was a fair in town and listened to music in the square. And saw the Castellos. I think that is what they are called. They... More

It's Beautiful on the outside with a dramatic setting. I can't comment on the interior. I really object to paying $9 (or anything) to enter any place of worship. For the treasury ok, but to the church itself, NO.

Can't get enough of these cathedrals in Spain. We first stopped off at the smaller cathedral on the way, which was nice in it's own way. The actual cathedral was enormous; we especially enjoyed the room near the entrance with the gold, silver, hats, etc.

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.
