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.

The cathedral was lovely to walk around the outside. I did not go inside as there was only 15 minutes left before closing and they wanted to charge me the full entrance which was not cheap.

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

The outside of the Cathedral is quite pleasant, a beautiful front but nothing much else to recommend it. I totally object to having to pay €7 to pray! Needless to say, I can't comment on the interior.

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.
