A bird’s eye view of Salamanca
At 110 metres tall, the medieval towers of the Cathedral make spectacular viewing points over Salamanca. The exhibition “Ieronimus” lets visitors explore the inside of the towers, go out on their terraces and sense their history while you walk around the pinnacles, gargoyles and battlements. Apart from the fantastic urban views, you can see the cathedral from the top of the triforium. While visiting hours are in daylight, there are options for night-time tours and special visits for practising Spanish. Another unique view over the roofs of Salamanca is from the towers of the Clerecía. The “Scala Coeli” tour (the name means “Stairway to Heaven”, which says it all) takes you around the Real Clerecía de San Marcos. Before reaching the towers, you can visit the upper gallery of the church, an ideal vantage point to admire the beauty of the main altar and the Baroque altarpiece. There are also nocturnal tours in summer.
