Expert review of Girona Cathedral

Spectacular Gothic / Baroque cathedral with the widest Gothic nave in the world.

I’ve never known anyone fail to be impressed by the sheer scale of this cathedral. Even if architecture and churches leave you cold, I’d be amazed if you’re not slightly blown away by this one. It’s a mix of medieval Gothic with 12th century cloisters and the epically scaled Gothic nave – which, at 23 metres wide is second only to St Peters in Rome as the broadest in the world and there's also one of the largest Rococo staircases in Europe.

To get to the cloisters, you need to go through the Museum which is also definitely worth a visit in itself, with some beautiful illuminated manuscripts and the equally impressive Medieval ‘creation tapestry’.
