Outstanding experience! For those who visit Girona in just over half a day (as in my case) The fact of having to validate the pass at the Md'A implies a good planning of the movements between one site and another among those included in the pass but also with the other sites that can be visited in the city due to their different opening and closing times. It would not be bad if each site published an average visit time in the FAQ (almost all sites in Barcelona did!) In order to facilitate this scheduling. The problem does not arise for those who decide to stay at least one night, thus dedicating at least a whole day to visits.

Girona is an extraordinary city, with a gigantic historical past and sumptuous architectural monuments. A great change of scenery close to the Spanish border. Student town with a beautifully paved fortified town centre, small alleys and nuggets to discover at every street corner. Lovers of the Arts, I oblige you!!! Alliance of Water and Stone, you feel good instantly!! There is too much to see and experience, three wonderful days!!

What a truly magical experience!! The Art Museum was a very educational visit for both myself and my 12yr old daughter, the ability to explore the history and the ever changing landscape of Art. Both the Cathedral and St Felix church are breathtaking, serene and so peaceful. Thoroughly recommend making them a part of your visit to Girona.
