After sitting in the sunny steps for a while, we did the tour inside (better than the Felix, which in retrospect we could have skipped and saved a few euro). The audio guide was included with admission. The cathedral also makes for some nice photos from afar, as we walked around the city and along the wall.

If you stay 1-2 days in Girona, you have to go to the cathedral and visit the place where parts of the Serie "games of thrones" was filmed. If you want, take a sandwich and a drink and sit down of the stairs and rest for a while. It is a good spot to catch some sun in the early... More

Even without the hype created by GoT, I think this cathedral is well worth a visit. It is simply a spectacular structure, and its so full of history. Its also worth it to pay for the combined entrance to the two churches. Definitely a must see when in Girona

The treasury holds an absolute gem; a mediaeval tapestry of the Creation that is in the alcove area at the end of the room. Don’t miss this, it is unusual, exquisite and well worth seeing! The front façade is pretty special and the impact of arriving in front of the building is increased by the 89 steps leading up to... More

Of course this Catedral is now famous for starring in the Game of Thrones - Baelor's Sept! There was a certain amount of CGI involved. Obvious if you've seen the series! All of this made the stunning building even more interesting!

Visited this place of interest in the early evening, it was dark as I walked around the wall following all the many steps that were put in front of me, if you have a problem with heights, or any other ailment that a rather long uphill task would make for you, then leave it alone. But the views are breathtaking,... More

Great architecture, history and design of the cathedral and made more special by the filming of Game of Thrones.

What an awesome and surreal experience it was visiting this cathedral! Totally felt like a scene from Game of Thrones with all the medieval architecture and design from the series plus the stairs and hills surrounding it. What I was most stunned by was that it's the 2nd largest cathedral nave in the world, only behind The Vatican. When you... More

The steps in front of the Cathedral are impressive. Surprisingly, it was not overcrowded with tourists, compared with the Cathedral in Barcelona. It costs €7 to go in the Cathedral and Basilica. The side door at the left side is a good place to enjoy the sunshine.
