Girona Cathedral Tours

Girona Cathedral
The baroque facade of the Girona Cathedral stands at the top of a grand staircase, high above the old city. The structure was built between the 11th and 18th centuries in a variety of styles: The cathedral boasts a Romanesque cloister and tower, Gothic nave (the widest of its kind in the world), and a baroque exterior.
 
The Basics
Girona Cathedral stands as the most prominent landmark in Girona and one of its most popular attractions. Many visitors explore the cathedral and surrounding town on a day trip from Barcelona; some trips also include stops at the Dalí Museum in nearby Figueres or the sacred mountaintop monastery of Montserrat. Entrance to the cathedral includes an audio guide in several languages, and access to the nave, treasury, cloister, and Basilica of Sant Feliu.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Girona Cathedral is a must-visit for spiritual travelers and first-time visitors to Girona.
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes and be prepared to climb about 90 steps to reach the cathedral entrance.
  • Much of the cathedral is wheelchair accessible, with the exception of the Conventual Chapel, cloister, and Sala del Tinell.
 
How to Get There
The cathedral is located in Plaça de la Catedral in the heart of Girona’s old city. The easiest way to get there is on foot, though it’s also possible to take a local bus to Plaça de Sant Doménec station or hire a taxi.
 
When to Get There
The cathedral is open daily throughout the year, with slightly reduced hours during the winter months (November to March). This sight is particularly beautiful during the annual Temps de Flors flower festival, when the steps are adorned in colorful blossoms.
 
Cathedral Treasury Museum
Visitors to the Girona Cathedral should make sure to explore Cathedral Treasury Museum. This collection showcases works of religious art dating as far back the 10th century. Notable pieces include the Beatus illuminated manuscript, the 11th-century Tapestry of Creation, and a Renaissance altarpiece of St. Helena.
