If you want to make the most of your time in Girona you cannot leave without visiting the Cathedral, the most important and emblematic monument in the city. Did you know that here is the widest Gothic nave in the world?
Presiding over the Old Town, it stands out for its size and its imposing Baroque staircase. For an hour, you will discover all the secrets that this architectural gem holds, from its beginnings to the most recent ones.
The visit consists of two parts. The first one will be outside, where we will explain the construction history of the temple, highlighting its different architectural styles.
The second, inside the building, we will visit the main nave, with its nine chapels, and the Treasury rooms, where the famous Tapestry of Creation is preserved. We will finish the visit in the cloister, one of the oldest in Catalonia.

Yes! However, and in this case, if you are a group of 10 people or more, it is better to book a Private Tour. This way you can have the tour in English, start at the time that suits you, and have the guide for your group. What a treat!
