    We just saw it on the outside, but only the steps already impresses, visible from any point of the city, as follower of game of Thrones transports you to the chapter in which appears this wonderful Cathedral

    2nd time and I am always too contemplative in front of this Cathedral! Don't hesitate to go up the stairs and go around.

    It is a shame that you can not come simply to see a cathedral without going through box office understand that if you want to hear with headphones the explanations and the history of the Cathedral you have to pay. but to simply access the site to look at, you have to loosen the euro... is painful every day have less believers and less which will have with this pursuit of profit

  • Most famous place of Girona. Also present on Game of Thrones. Fun fact: the second is added digitally on the series
  • Very impressive Cathedral, the displays on the inside are well thought out, should you want to visit in the evening it is very romantic the lights displayed on it bring out all of its most beautiful features. If you are into training you can use the stairs to run up-and-down like Rocky!
  • It's gorgeous cathedral, so huge and so quiet inside. Built in gothic style, it makes you feel so small and miserable. Entrance is free, so you can enter and watch everything.
  • Impressive structure. You should never have to pay to visit a place of worship
  • Girona it’s the small, very nice and colorful town. Interesting place to see is the Roman remains of the Força Vella fortress old roman fortifications.
