Girona’s Cathedral

The mysticism of a lived cathedral

Costa Brava

The Cathedral of Santa Maria de Girona is a temple of reference. Built between the 11th and 18th centuries, it has a large Gothic nave which, with a width of 23 metres, is the widest Gothic space in the world.

Walking through Girona you notice the presence of a hidden history. But what isn’t hidden, is the Cathedral, which has a true presence. Explore with the naturalness of the sun’s clarity at any moment, with no artificial lighting, observing the shadows: enjoying the temple with its own light makes you understand and immerse yourself in the indescribable mysticism of a lived cathedral.

Perhaps it is this added value that is essential for realising the importance of the sensibility exuded by the Cathedral and the streets that surround it.
