Embark on a guided tour of the roofs and the Carraca Tower, exploring also the Cathedral and its outstanding areas of the Museum, such as the cloister, chapter house and library, among others. This experience will give you the best panoramic views of the city, while you immerse yourself in the various stages of construction of the Cathedral, discovering its fascinating history and evolution and enjoy the Portico of Glory (only if this option is selected). If you choose the option without the Portico of Glory: the tour has a little interval between the two parts due to the need to climb 150 steps to explore the rooftops and ascend the ratchet tower. For this reason, this tour is not recommended for people with limited mobility. *This tour is available only in Spanish.
