7 euros to enter . I still prefer the other church in the old city ..of the sea...and free and quieter. This is worth a visit if you are into cathedrals but not a must. Older churches in Girona and other towns are more appealing...More

Beautiful old medieval church. You need to pay a ticket to get inside and also there is a small museum. Bonus: the ducks at the back yard of the church!

In a rainy day we decided to visit this place. Very beautiful and interesting experience with a little beautiful garden. We took the elevator to the terrace but was pouring rain and we returned in the cathedral. Great tourist attraction.

This is a marvelous, gorgeous place. I was very impressed and would compare it favorably to Westminster or Cologne. It was especially fun to escape to the relative quiet of the monastery garden and see the 13 geese.
