The heart of the city of Girona, this massive cathedral is not to be missed when visiting. I recommend starting any walking tour or exploration of the city here. Great restaurants nearby too.

Breathtaking cathedral in the center of the city. You can't miss it as it is literally in the center and so overpowering that it will literally take your breath away. There is an entrance fee to go inside, 7 euros per person and free for children under 7. Do you get a feeling of deja vu when you look at this church? That's because it was one of the featured places for season 6 of Game of Thrones!

One of the landmarks of Girona that can be seen from many places in town, the Cathedral stands proudly and is a must see. The best way to approach it is via a walk on Girona's wall. It's a must visit, but it never gets crowded.

Anyone should not leave Girona before visiting the grand Girona cathedral. Located at the hilly area is now the center of tourism of the area.

The Cathedral of Girona is the show-stopping centerpiece of the city. Constructed in the 11th century, the Cathedral has seen Girona transition from ancient commercial center to the modern cultural hub it is today. Almost more impressive than the Cathedral itself is the massive Baroque staircase that leads to the grand front doors of this religious center.

This is a beautiful old Cathedral that was the first thing we hit when we got to Girona. The stairs are so high and steep I wondered if they were supposed to be the stairway to heaven or were built for defensive purposes.
