  • Interesting architecture.. brings you back to medieval centuries.. a must visit in Girona.. have a walk around the gardens.. it s very relaxing especially during summer days.. enjoy the view of the old city.. entrance to the cathedral is very reasonably priced... The perfect spot to have nice pictures from the city.
  • Impressive cathedral more widely known for Game of Thrones scenes. My friends and I really enjoyed the surrounding areas too. Lovely cobbled streets, an Al fresco area with what looked like pop up bars. You can access the wall here and fortunately for us took us right to the end where we can walk up the hill to our hotel. Very busy at the cathedral although it was a Saturday.
