The Medieval Towers of the Cathedral
The Medieval Towers of the Cathedral constitute one of the most important emblems of Salamanca. From afar they define its profile and its horizon, and close up they assert themselves with their height of 110 metres. The route inside them allows us to become familiar with the history of their construction and to experience at first hand over 900 years of art and history by means of the Ieronimus exhibitios. This route inside the Medieval Towers of the Cathedral, among battlements, pinacles and gargoyles, allows contemplation of the Old Cathedral from its inner platform. Its balconies and watchtowers constiture a privileged vantage point of the River Tormes.
The climb is not suitable for people with vertigo, since at its highest point there are 30 feet to the ground, but however It is worth spending a little scared to see the beauty of the roofs of the cathedrals, the Torre del Gallo or watch the New Cathedral from a balcony at the top of the temple.
