“Go up the tower!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

We arrived at 11am on a Tuesday and were told entrance was free before 12! Not sure what other times/days it is free, so you might want to check the schedule before going, and save 3.75eur. Its an easy climb, with a few stops along the way (it does not go all the way to the top), including on that is beside one of the roofs. Great views! It is also linked to the upper part of the insideof the new cathedral, and you can walk around part of it (it's really high up! The balcony is very narrow, so it might be best not to bring small children).

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Very interesting and beautiful architecture as well as the entourage around the cathedral. Walking through both New and Old Cathedrals is one of the best things to do in Salamanca.

“Old cathedral the centrepiece”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

The three sites that comprise this complex,new and old and San Ieronimous are worth the time and effort to explore, there are some steep and high climbs and it is quite extensive, with entry fees to the old cathedral and the tower. But the old cathedral for me was the highlight, it is majestic and extremely beautiful.

“Hard to find, but worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

The entrance to the old cathedral is inside the new cathedral, which we found out only after walking around the outside a few times and trying various doors. Fantastic altar, and the museum is interesting.
