The historical heart of Girona is the Gothic quarter, set high on the hill overlooking the river and later town. At times steep pathways and roads are surrounded by cafes, restaurants and gift shops. An excellent museum shows the history, art and culture that has built the city. The river and nearby buildings bring colour to the lower streets where... More

The Girona Cathedral is a grand Spanish cathedral with centuries and centuries of Spanish history reflected in the cathedral's own evolution to the present day. But to me this cathedral is the carefully preserved marvel of a great step in Western Civilization's advancement in architectural engineering. Walk into the cathedral and sit down in a pew. Then look to your... More

Climbed up the steps to a great view over Girona, and were delighted to go round the Cathedral. There was an offer on to include the nearby St Feliu church, also interesting.

The Girona Cathedral has a good collection of artefacts, which are well displayed. Good if you like this sort of thing.

Even though we didn't plan it when we passed Girona with the train on our way to Figeres we saw the Cathedral and decided to make a stop on our way back. And so we did. The catedral was breathtaking,enormous and really beautiful. I find the ticket overpriced.

The cathedral is built on top of a platform overlooking the old town, which is built over an older Roman temple. There is a set of steps leading up to the main entrance in the Baroque facade. However, you need to enter by the visitor centre to the left of the Cathedral. The visitor centre gives you access to the... More

This cathedral is gorgeous! We did not expect such a large and beautiful cathedral to be in this town. Towers above the city.

My excellent rating here, undoubtedly belong the the Christian art, Tapestry of the Creation. The tapestry follows the writings in Genesis 1 and 2. It is an outstanding Romanesque needlework done in the eleventh century.It is very large in size and depicts the sequence of creation and the adoration of God the Creator. Study it patiently. Not to be missed... More

Another spectacular cathedral in Spain. Well worth a visit if Cathedrals are your thing. 1 - 2 hours is good enough.

The Catedral is the centerpiece of a visit to the old quarter of Girona. We found the tapestry on display to be quite interesting. Consider walking along the wall, which was part of the fortifications, either on your way to or from the Catedral, but try to do this either early in the day or in the early evening, as... More
