  • The views from the leronimus towers were gorgeous. 198 steps to get to the top of the tower. You get great views of the city and worth the entry fee.  more »
  • A marvellous walk between the walls , roofs and tower of the Cathedral of Salamanca. You´ll can take a near look of the gargoyles and pinacles of this gothic buildin and climb to the main tower.  more »
  • Best way to view both the cathedral and Salamanca. Great first tourist attraction. Brilliant way to see the rooftops and the ceilings of the cathedral as the walkways both go up and around the tower that you enter and include a short walkway around the upper parts of the cathedral interior. Would wholeheartedly recommend at only €3 for the experience. Excellent value for money
  • It's always good to get a view of a city. The Ieronimus tower gives this plus a view of the nave from an elevated gallery and walkways on the roof. It's a great opportunity to see some of the carvings and decorations close-up, and get a whole new perspective of the cathedral(s). There are several different rooms with exhibitions on the way up, which makes the climb easier.
