Spent approx 30mins looking around. You could spend a lot more time there if you're in the mood. It was a nice break from outside. Great examples of gold and marble work. Also a beautiful medieval hand stitched quilt. It was worth the £7 pp.

We stayed about 300m from the Cathedral so heard it before we saw it! Lovely architecture, beautiful inside chapels and the history of the many reconstructions and alterations over the centuries was well explained. The side chapels have timed lighting and it's jaw-dropping when the lights go on. One reservation - these side chapels could do with some TLC in... More

Led a group of students to Girona in catalunia and visited this big cathedral . It was a sunday so we witnessed the prayers which was very holy and awesome. It's situated on top of the city and offers a panoramic view

The cathedral is a must-see place for it's impressive architecture but even more so for its location. Stunning views of the area can be seen from it's steps.

The main draw of Girona deserves all the attention, because it is quite stunning and breathtaking compared to other cathedrals, even if you have seen every last cathedral in the country. If you are on a day trip, keep enough time aside to look around the outside and back lanes with the quiet lush gardens and the old Arab baths.... More

The cathedral is very nice, specially if you visit it during May with 'temps de flors'. All the surrounding area is very nice to walk around.

We were short on time and did not get the audioguide, but I am sure I would have enjoyed it. LOTS of history and beautiful Catholic artifacts. Don't miss the museum at the end- especially the Bibles and Tapestries. For Game of Thrones fans, this cathedral is in several episodes.

This was one of the highlights of our visit to Girona. Up a long flight of steps (be sure to take photos of the front façade of the church from the bottom) and around the side will lead you to the entrance. We visited the smaller Basilica down the hill first and purchased admission (7 e) for both. Be sure... More

The audiotour that the ticket includes is very good. It explain thoughly how they contrusted the church and it is very well conserved!!! I don't recommended if you aren't in a good condition because their are a lot of stairs to get to the church
