  • This Cathedral is one of the largest in Spain. It is very impressive from the outside than inside. It is located in the most interesting part of Girona with including the Arab baths, the wall and the old cobbled streets. Location of the series Game of Thrones for lovers!

  • Amazing Cathedral not to be missed by old Cathedral/Church lovers like me. I've been to a lot of the large famous ones in Europe and this one really holds a candle to any of them. Gorgeous stained glass. Massive interior (apparently the largest gothic nave in The world). Good audio guide.
  • The Cathedral of Girona is awe-inspiring in scope from both the interior and exterior. The building has transformed through many iterations over nearly a millennium of existence, from the 1000 year old Romanesque courtyard to the modern-era analogue clock on its bell tower. Be sure to get an audio guide for the full effect. This is the must-see building in Girona. Also be sure to view the Creation Tapestry in the Cathedral treasure rooms.
  • fascinating architecture, a lot of stairs makes it look impressive. entrance to the cathedral is paying, I think it`s 7e.
  • A wonderful church with history and heritage. Eye astonishingly beautiful!
  • If you like Game of Thrones then you will appreciate the surrounding area. If you don't watch the series at all then you'll probably like the architecture. If you don't like either the you can pass on this area.
