Beautiful cathedral in the center of Girona with a nice walking path, gardens, interesting architecture, artifacts and great views of the city. Walk out the back to the path for a spectacular sunset.

Barcelona is not the only city to see in Cataluña. Go a bit up and you will see Girona. It's a small city, old, full of story as you walk in. Amazing views, from the walls and sunny. Good restaurants, good bars to out at night. Not on sunday and monday...but good and cosy places to go. Close to costa... More

This place is really beautiful outside and in, i was surprised by the charge though, the architecture is incredible. you walk down this narrow little streets and then round a corner there is this place staring down at you, from the top of its steps, rather humbling

The outside in itself is stunning and a great photo opportunity at the bottom of the stairs. We found it interesting looking at the sculptures with their large hands. We paid 7€ each to go inside. There is also artworks on display to the side of the entrance with some beautiful tapestries. The inside is lovely too.

We visited Girona from Barcelona as excursion. We needed 1h by car. There are old small alleys, stairs, church. This church has special tapestry which is very artistic for me. We stayed half day to walk around this old town. then we visited small village around Girona. As the comparison with Barcelona, visitor is not so much, so we could... More

Also go inside to see the cathedral and the inside court, you have to pay for it but it is worth the expenditure.

This cathedral has the widest nave in Christendom. The shear size of the arched space is awe inspiring. There are many additions to the cathedral through the centuries, but the heart of the church is very cohesive and I was glad we stopped to see it.
