Had an afternoon trip to Girona from Tossa de Mar and didn't know what to expect, wow, were we treated to something really special. The guide took us through the streets ( which were rich in history ) explaining several of the sights and then we were gifted with this amazing sight in front of the Cathedral, so imposing in...

Awesome interior space and enchanting cloister. Interesting museum with enormous and mysterious tapestry and gorgeous illuminated manuscripts. . Free on Sundays, by the way.

We didn't expect much from just another regional cathedral but we were absolutely blown away by this one. The area it's in is beautiful for a start. There is a nice old courtyard & a small museum of the bishops gowns going back hundreds of years but all pales into insignificance compared to inside the cathedral itself. It's absolutely huge....

This is one of the great Gothic cathedrals of Spain. It's not as flamboyant as some but its redolent with history (being based on the temple of the Roman forum) and its nave alone is worth seeing. Small but impressive treasury and delightful cloisters make it a very good value for money visit at €7 (incl. Sant Feliu). By the... More

It's an awesome and quiet place to visit if you like architecture, history and cathedrals. The actual cathedral itself is free. But if you want to go to the museum, there is a charge.

Girona Cathedral is an awesome place not only from the inside but also from the outside. It is situated on a hill and this provides a very good view of the city of Girona

Passing through Girona via train on our way to France, I spotted the Girona Cathedral on the skyline. "We've gotta check this place out," I said to my wife. "Circle it on the map." To make a long story short, we did return, opting to live in Girona for three months in the spring of 2013. Naturally, we got to... More

You come upon the cathedral after climbing up a hill into the city and it calls you to make the trek. It was worth it because afterwards, you are treated to all the other important monuments in Girona so it is the perfect place to start your tour of the city.

We walked to the old cathedral along the old city walls, which is a hike. Not suitable for people with walking difficulties. Lots of stairs and very high in some places, but you do get great views of mountains, rooftops and cathedral. The cathedral is amazing and 7 euros entrance fee is not to bad, it does include a commentary... More

It is just awe inspiring to see a building so grand and so old. There are quite a few stairs to get up to the cathedral. Take you time climbing then and enjoy the view.
