This was one of the highlights of the trip! I was awestruck by the architecture and history of this monument. The windy, narrow streets of Girona take you to a medieval time and leads you to this grandiose cathedral. We were lucky to happen to visit when it was open to tourists (and free!). We got to see altars and... More

With 3 children and 3 hours to kill, we parked behind the fort and walked around the fort and down to the stunning cathedral. Challenging with a buggy in places but workable with many slopes to avoid steps. Kids can play in areas of the fort and there are many side restaurants down towards the river and across the bridge...

My girlfriend and I loved visiting this cathedral. A very beautiful building with a nice view of the square below and the roofs of Girona can be seen from the front entrance. Although it was a bit busy due it being the high season for tourists in Spain we were able to grab a table and order food as well... More

Marvel at amazing inner space, with no supporting columns in the main area of this amazing building, it is a marvelous testimony to the craftsmen that made it, it was even paused while they worked out if it was possible. The stained glass is a wonder to behold, and as this cathedral is darker than most, looks stunning. Don't miss... More

Beautiful building, especially the outside. Inside is darker than other cathedrals I've been in but this emphasizes the bright colours of the stained glass windows - beautiful. The audio tour is worth doing - just the right amount of detail and the information provided enhances the experience. Entrance fee is €7 and includes audio guide and free entrance to the... More

Impressive building, calm and peaceful inside. Audio commentary is very interesting and easy to follow. Not many people on our visit so there was time to sit and reflect.

I enjoyed touring the outside of the Cathedral grounds more than the inside. While the interior was grand and impressive for its size, it was a bit dark and not as ornate as some churches I have seen. It is worth touring the gardens and the walls around the cathedral tough.

.. We did not have a lot of time in Girona and i thought 7€ was a bit pricey for a church, I can just say that I might go back one day and take the self audio tour because I like churches.The views from up there are gorgeous, if you have trouble going upstairs ..watch out! there are tons... More
