The Church of Sant Fèlix is one of Girona's most representative Gothic buildings.

The Basilica of Sant Fèlix (or Sant Feliu) was the main church in Girona before the cathedral was built. It's located on a prominence of the hill on which the large part of Roman Girona extended. Its construction, in honour of the martyr Saint Felix, lasted from the 12th century until the 17th, and it still contains an ample part of the Romanesque building, which was completed later on with Gothic naves and rooves, and a Baroque façade. It's one of the city's most representative Gothic works, in particular the bell tower. Other highlights include the eight Roman and Paleo-Christian sarcophagi that were uncovered on the site when the church was being built, along with the Gothic sepulchre of Sant Narcís, the patron saint of Girona.
