Photo of Church of Sant Feliu in Girona

This distinguished church, the oldest in Girona, enjoys the title of Major Parish Church and was the episcopal see before the construction of the present-day cathedral.

It houses the remains of the martyr Sant Feliu, victim of Emperor Diocletian's persecution (305 AD), along with those of the patron saint of the city and bishopric of Girona, the bishop and martyr Sant Narcís.

The present-day church was built between the 14th and 15th centuries, while the chapel of Sant Narcís, designed by the architect Ventura Rodríguez, with paintings of Manuel Tremulles, was added between 1782 and 1792.

The church also contains eight Roman and Early Christian sarcophagi from between the 2nd and 4th century AD, which probably came from a cemetery that once existed on the same site.

Since May 2011, the basilica of Sant Feliu has held the title of Minor Basilica, bestowed by Pope Benedict XVI.
