Lovely old cathedral. The winding streets up to it and steps in front are spectacular. €7 entrance is slightly steep. I visited 8am in the morning when it is open for worship for free - less crowds and very peaceful

It's very beautiful cathedral. The square in the front is very nice to rest. You can even get free wifi. It's lovely to go.

This building is worth a visit for several reasons. The architecture is an amalgam of different styles, techniques and periods but pull the lot together and it works. The stained glass panels are outstanding and span several centuries, with the most recent window from 2012. A few of the panels are very special indeed.The steps to the main entrance remind... More

You may have to wait a while to get in so it is best to book online in advance especially in the hot weather season. This way you can get an exact time for your visit. There are plenty of cafés around the cathedral if you arrive early.

Enjoyed the grandeur of this great Cathederal. The wonderful art work within the walls certainly make it a worthwhile stop while you are in Girona.

Amazing slice of history in Girona, worth a coffee or drink sitting at the bottom of the steps too. Interesting look at the old clothes / outfits over the years too

The Cathedral's built at the top of a hill, and there are a LOT of steep steps to get up to it. Alternatively, there's a narrow snicket through the old mediaeval town, but it's cobbled and anyway there's just the same height to be gained. If you have mobility problems it may be best to think of some other way... More
