Girona Cathedral - Review
Known for its splendid architecture, the Gerona Cathedral has the widest Gothic nave in the world. The construction of the Cathedral began in the year 1312. Since then, it has undergone a few renovations. Due to this, the cathedral design is a mix of Romanesque style, Gothic style and baroque style. A must see within the church premises is the tapestry of the Creation and the bell tower.

Girona Cathedral, Girona Reviews
Its a beautiful impressive historic place. But common most of us know it as landmark in Westeros and thats a huge bonus.
Fantastic cathedral in the old City if Girona. Impressive architecture and ambience. Choose a guide or audio tour if you want to understand the history better. About an hour's drive from Barcelona city. Lots of nice cafes around.
The Girona Cathedral, also known as the Cathedral of Saint Mary of Girona. The cathedral's interior includes the widest Gothic nave in the world, with a width of 22 metres (72 ft). Its construction was begun in the 11th century in the Romanesque architectural style, and continued in the 13th century in the Gothic style. Of the original Romanesque edifice only the 12th-century cloister and a bell tower remain. The second bell tower was completed in the 18th century.
A rare find: One of eight ancient sarcophagus planted into its sanctuary walls. No one knows why they were moved there, but it’s interesting to see the 8th sarcophagus (on the right wall of the altar) which is from 230AD, made with marble from the Greek island of Paros, depicting Persephone’s abduction by Pluto. Subsequently it shows the 4 seasons. This is truly amazing! All the way from Greece to Spain...
This is where Cersei's walk of shame begins. You cannot miss it, or shame on you! The interior is a gothic wonder and despite having only one tower, you will enjoy the respite granted from the entrance fee.
