  • 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.
