Santa Maria Cathedral

The Girona Cathedral

The cathedral of Girona is the province's - and perhaps one of the world's - most important Gothic monument. The shrine was built between the 14th and 17th centuries on various successive religious buildings.

Its most salient feature is the immensity of its single Gothic nave, the construction of which was an almost unimaginable challenge for the period's master builders. Indeed, although originally three naves were planned, it was finally decided to build a single nave nearly 23 metres wide - perhaps the broadest Gothic nave ever built.

The Cathedral Museum contains two of the most significant works of medieval European art: the Creation Tapestry, an immense piece depicting various scenes of the Creation, and the Beatus, a manuscript decorated with tiny illustrations dating from the year 975, considered the richest of the codices reproducing the Beatus of Liébana's Apocalypse.

There is a charge to enter the Cathedral but it is well worth it and includes a self-guide tour.

You cant miss the enormity of the single span of the nave but don't miss the little side chaples containing some familiar saints (St. George) and some less well known (St Dalmatius). The cloisters are well worth spending time in. I was fascinated by the carvings on the pillars.

T2 No smoking and no other food shops
Really not happy with this airport. Travel assisstance takes forever to get to you, language barriers and you're not advised of any area restrictions or limitations before during or after security. Security rush you through with"""rapidos"" which honestly made me want to cry with all the attention while struggling with a toddler in pushchair and autistic elder child . To find out then travel assistance don't stay with you, they leave and come back just before boarding if they bother to. Can't smoke or buy any other food other than sandwiches which where spotted with black bits?? Cant smoke after security. the last leg of our holiday and its been shite

The textile museum is now located in the Design Museum, and it’s just costumes. There is no technical information about textile production or creation. Be warned that there are NO EXHIBITS pre-1550.
