About Girona Cathedral

Girona Cathedral (Catedral De Girona) is best known for its vast nave, being the widest Gothic nave in the world. In fact, Girona Cathedral’s nave was the cause of much controversy. Inititially intended to have three naves, the change in plans to just one caused much discord.

Having been built and altered over a period stretching from the 11th to the 18th centuries, Girona Cathedral blends a variety of styles, including Romanesque, Baroque and, of course, Gothic.
