  • I went to see the outside of the Cathedral and the staircase in front because I was interested in seeing the sights of Girona where was shot game of thrones. Very nice and quaint, but we didn't do the tour because the entrance ticket cost way too much to the type of attraction.

  • Where I come from entry to religious sites is always free and, call me old fashioned, but that is the way it should ideally be throughout the civilized world. Places of worship should as a minimum be ...  more »
  • Well worth a visit, you get an audio guide too. In the heart of the old town and an amazing historical building. I am not interested in the religious aspect but very much enjoyed the architecture and ...  more »

  • 7 Euros gets you entry here, the Basilica and Museum of Modern Art. That'll take you a day at least although if you rush it'll only take a few hours. Ticket valid all day. Fantastic history and knowledge.
  • The cathedral was very nice and definitely worth the visit however the audio tour could have been better. At many of the stops it was difficult to determine which artifact, painting or item was being referred to in the audio.
  • The pricing is family unfriendly. The adult tickets include a non-optional audioguide that makes up 60% of the price but children aren’t allowed audioguides and their tickets don’t include them. So do they really expect parents to walk around listening to audio guides while their kids look after themselves? Shame on them!!!
  • Just must see in Girona. It's the symbol of this city and looks really awesome. Cozy place with great atmosphere.
  • Beautiful stained glass, several relics related to the Catholic Church. There's also a sarcophagus. The ticket gets you the visit + audio guide, and access to the nearby Basilica. Do not miss the stunning views of the French mountains.
