“The highlight of the highlights”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Salamanca is just stuffed full of wonderful places to visit but this was the highlight. As well as providing lots of information about the cathedrals, we were able to go out on to the roof, look down into both the old and new cathedrals from the walkway (trying to ignore the cracks in the walls and the fact that the balustrade was stapled together at one point.....) Excellent visit.

“Unique vistas of the cathedrals and surroundings”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

Stunning inside and outside views of the two cathedrals of Salamanca! The climb is manageable with stops for pictures and explanations all the way up to the bell tower. The vistas of the cathedral towers and the views of Salamanca are breathtaking. Truly a photographers dream. Enjoy the bells as you feel them resonate inside of you. Not to be missed!

“Amazing Way to See the Cathedral and Salamanca”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

This place is likely the highest place in the city. To me this is more interesting than seeing the inside of the church from the ground floor. You can see the inside of the church from the balconies, as well as the bell tower and from the outside a great view of Salamanca.

“Must go”
Reviewed 4 February 2014 via mobile

It seems to be the highest place in Salamanca, with precious views of the city. Going up is easy, you'll have good internal views of both Nueva and Vieja cathedrals. Try to get to the bells by the time they start ringing.

“A top tip for Salamanca!”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

This tower is definitely worth a visit for the small price, and there is enough content for a good hour. I went up just after they opened on a Wednesday morning and had only the cleaner for company, which made it a striking experience.

The climb is steep and narrow, but well organised with a traffic light system to prevent the usual scraping against winding staircase walls. There is a well-worn metal grill over the roof that can be a bit daunting if you have vertigo.

Apart from the marvellous views of the exterior and from inside gallery of the New Cathedral (three sides) the tower houses small thematic exhibits detailing the history, architecture and function of the building as well as a multimedia installation based on the Lisbon earthquake, which has been running since the 250th anniversary of the disaster.
