WOW !

any steps up, quite grand. In the beautiful historic district in Girona. Not only the Cathedral but the entire area deserves a visit. It seems un-touched after all these years.

The cathedral is a beautiful example of gothic architecture. We visited the cathedral on 15th August and thought it was closed off for visitors but then we realised that the entry for visitors is in fact located on the left-hand side of the main entrance! You buy tickets first and can get audio-guides before entering the cathedral itself. Its interior... More

Girona is beautiful (old town) and the Cathedral is absolutely a must. Giant, cold walls, gothic darkness...

I don't like to be rude about cathedrals, as after all they are predominantly places of worship, but this one is just bland. The outside looks somewhat promising, but inside it is just another church! The cloisters are pretty, but apart from that . . .

I love cathedrals, but having queued for some time and paid a reasonable sum, I think I expected something more. The cloisters were lovely, however.

Parts of Girona are very hilly and there's a lot of walking involved. For those who aren't as agile there is a Girona tour train that stops right outside the cathederal and for those a little more adventurous you can experience the breathtaking views with a walk along the walls which brings you out in the old town.
