Owner description: This 15th-century cathedral has the second-widest nave in the world.
Reviewed November 16, 2016

The Girona cathedral is a massive masterpiece of 11th century Romanesque architecture. It is the 2nd widest nave, second only to a cathedral in Rome. When you walk inside, the size is INCREDIBLE. I have been to many beautiful cathedrals in Europe and this is certainly the largest and most impressive.

For Game of Thrones fans, the steps leading to the cathedral could be as captivating as the cathedral itself.

If you are in Girona, I highly suggest a visit, whether religious or not. It's worth it!

The Cathedral of Saint Mary of Girona is the cathedral church of the Roman Catholic! Make sure you count the steps going up... and then count them going down... then send me an email on your thoughts

This is a Cathredral which was rebuild 2-3 times to accommodate the needs of the expanded city.
The original Cathedral was build around 1,000 years ago but during the time of different rulers and as the city was growing there was need for a larger cathedral.
The facade of teh building is very beauitiful, decorated with many ornament it is probably the most attractiive building is Girona.Inside it is impressive but since there was a service going on, I could not go around and see the details of the Cathedral.

Another quality cathedral with an interesting history much of which is explained on the tour by various means. Given that this has such a special architectural history I thought the information was lacking

On this site there was a Romanesque church in the 11 th century . Gothic was begun in 14th and finished in 1579. The nave completed in 1417 is the widest of any Gothic church in the world. The facade was built in 1733, it looks a bit like a square iced cake
