Church of St. Felix, Girona

Local nameBasilica de Sant Feliu
LocationGirona, Spain

The Collegiate Church of St. Felix is a basilica dedicated to St. Felix in the Spanish city of Girona, dating to the early days of Christianity. It houses the offices of the Parish of Sant Feliu, the Roman Catholic Diocese of Girona, so called because it was the main church of Girona before the construction of the cathedral. Its construction, in honor of Felix of Girona, occurred from the 12th century until the 17th century. It retains much of the Romanesque construction, completed later with a Gothic nave and a covered baroque facade. It is notable for its eight Roman and early Christian sarcophagi of the 3rd and 4th centuries, along with the Gothic tomb of Narcissus of Girona who, according to tradition, was one of the early bishops of the see.
