Basílica de Sant Feliu information
Just downhill from the cathedral is Girona’s second great church, with its landmark truncated bell tower. The nave is majestic with Gothic ribbed vaulting, while St Narcissus, the patron of the city, is venerated in an enormous marble-and-jasper, late-baroque side chapel. Underneath his reclining form you see scenes from his life including the conversion of women, martyrdom and expelling of an evil genie. To the side is the Gothic sepulchre, dating from 1328, that previously held his remains. A decent audio guide tour is included with admission.
