A permanent exhibition on the history of Salamanca’s cathedral and the diocese, Ieronimus is located within the medieval towers of the New Cathedral, an attraction in themselves, worth climbing for the views. If you’re intimidated by the steps, keep in mind that tour groups stop frequently for pictures so there is plenty of time to rest. Check online in advance to time your visit to hear the bells from up close. Don’t miss the video simulation of the damage caused by the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. Put Ieronimus at the forefront of your travel plans using our Salamanca trip itinerary planner.
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 »
The stairs up to the tower offer great views from the cathedral inner part (amazing arch hall views) and from the city old Town. There are some exhibition rooms as well (clock room, bells room... 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.
