Although much smaller in size to the nearby Girona Cathedral, Sant Feliu is nonetheless a wonderful piece of religious craftsmanship. There is an audio guide included with admission and I found it was quite informative without going overboard with details. The unique and over-the-top Chapel of St. Narcissus is a must-see. Be sure to see the holes in the high arches where the organ was once attached. There were hardly any other visitors when I was here which made for a quiet and intimate experience.

As soon as my wife and I arrived in Girona, the building that stood out right away was the Bell Tower with its distinctive spire. The tower, which dates back to the 12th Century is very well maintained and is well worth the walk up the sometimes steep streets to obtain a closer view. Seeing the Bell Tower from a distance, it appears to be a part of the Girona Cathedral. However, I realized as I approached that the Bell Tower is separate from the Cathedral.

In its way more impressive than the cathedral as it seemed to us to be more of a unity, is sombre atmosphere blending well with the modest interior. These things are purely subjective but we felt that we might be able to experience religious feeling more here than in most other churches that we have been in as lifelong agnostics. We will return, I am sure.

Standing close to the Cathedral makes it easy to visit both Churches.

The Church of Sant Feliu was the main Church of Girona before the construction of the Cathedral.

It is noted for its eight Roman and early Christian sarcophagi of the 3rd and 4th centuries and the Gothic Tomb of Narcissus of Girona who traditionally was one of the early Bishops.

It is much smaller than the Cathedral but nevertheless worth a visit and has a nice atmosphere and lovely stained-glass windows.

This church is just opposite the bridge of Saint Felix, on the eastern bank of the River Onyar. It seemed a little odd that a basilica is smaller than the cathedral until I found out that historically this church housed the Diocese of Girona and therefore the main church in Girona until the construction of the cathedral. Much like the cathedral, it’s a lovely mix of Romanesque, Gothic and with a Baroque facade. Not quite a beautiful as Girona Cathedral, this church does have a few interesting points such as the 4th century sarcophaguses, an interesting alter with a statue of Saint Felix (I think), and the tomb of Narcissus of Girona who was one of the early bishops of Girona.

Keep in mind that you can buy a combined ticket for this basilica and Girona Cathedral, also known as the Church of St. Mary. Although the cathedral is more opulent than the basilica, I actually found the narrative of the audio guide for the basilica far superior.

Do not miss the Chapel of Saint Narcissus, which I though was far more beautiful than any of the chapels in the church for it's stunning jasper walls.

I've seen people rushing through Girona just to see the Cathedral de Santa María, the famous stairs in front of Sant Martí Sacosta and other Game of Thrones locations.

This church is actually the oldest one in town and holds centuries of history and stories. Do not ignore it.

The old town of Girona and the temple itself are great examples of "spanish" gothic.
By the way,Girona as a city it's a great place to visit.

Beautiful place to visit with many Gothic features. The intricate details in the stone work is something not to be missed.

This Gothic church compliments the nearby Cathedral. It has an austere looking interior with the side chapels holding most of the colour. One of these is the chapel of St Narcissus, which aptly for a saint of this name contains a brighter stonework and ceiling painting than the main church. The main altar has a large altarpiece work examining up close and well carved stone elements on the side walls.

Entrance for the Cathedral, Basilica and Art Museum can be purchased on a combined ticket.
