This cathedral evolved over 4 centuries so it is unlike some of the more classic cathedrals you find in Spain. It looks odd and non-symmetrical but is still mightily impressive. You can buy one ticket which will admit you to this and the neighbouring Basilica - good value.

Inside this old-walled city you will find easily this cathedral, seen from several Kilometres due to its high position. If you like the photography you will find some interesting points to take good shots from outside (inside the pictures are forbidden, with or without flash), just try to go when the tourists are still sleeping or already gone. Inside, you'll... More

This cathedral is of an imrpressive size! You pay 7 euro to visit it, and two more attractions near by. Behind the cathedral, you have an easy access to Girona's old walls.

We visited Girona and fell in love with it! It is a scenic historic town well worth spending the time to explore. There are two churches in Girona, the Cathedral and the Bascilica. You can purchase a ticket for both places and you get a tape player to learn of the history. The Bascilica was great, very old , and... More

The Cathedral of Girona dominates the city and looking up at it from the bottom of the steps is fantastic. Externally the cathedral is amazing but once inside it is a sight to behold as it has the widest gothic nave in the world. The cloisters are a worthy detour where there is an exhibition of cassocks through the ages.... More

We were staying close by and only went to this Church by chance. But I suggest you make the effort! Have seen lots of churches, but this one is worth it.
