Free entry on a Sunday, a spectacular interior which is well worth a visit. Coupled well with Sant Feliu

The entrance fee allows you to visit the Cathedral and the older Basilica. They are both very beautiful and have a wonderful atmosphere.

Like other people I'm adding this review as a complaint for the 7€ charge to enter in the Cathedral. I'll never pay a dime to enter in a church or other religious building, they get enough from donation. And next to the Cathedral is the Museu d'Art which costs half and is a much better experience (at least you learn... More

Definitely worth of seeing. We were there on weekend and entrance was on the main door with no fees included. It has a great view as it is positiones very high.

Having visited rather more churches and cathedrals across Spain that I can remember, Girona Cathedral is right up there in terms of wow factor with some really very beautiful chapels with a beautiful cloister. Definitely worth a visit and ticket price includes entry to the (less impressive on the inside) St Feliu.

Despite the hoards of school trips, the cathedral still retains its feeling of serenity and religious contemplation. The nave is also very impressive. Don't forget to go and see the nails next door, it's included in the entrance price and well worth a look.

Take the tour with the handheld audio guide. The whole experience is steeped in history and an incredible history of Christianity in this area. Having spent much time in Italy...this is as spectacular as the famed Italian cathedrals. Loving Spain. A highly memorable cathedral! And a Museum of treasures.

I'm not a fan of visiting cathedrals, but aside from the lovely view of girona, the inside was breathtakingly magnificent. 100% recommended not to miss. Worth the 7 euros also has a good audioguide.
