Well worth the admission price, climbing all the stairs and walking out on roof tops for fabulous views was very exciting. Some excellent exhibits along the way up, too, giving one time to catch one's breath. Maybe not ideal for one afraid of heights or tight spaces.

We thought hard and long before attempting to climb this tower, but the experience was well worth it. Not expensive. Some interesting exhibitions on the way up, and useful English leaflet to assist you. Sadly the video on the effect of the Lisbon earthquake wasn't working! Good one way system, and traffic light control of narrow stairs is excellent. It... More

Definitely worth the $3.75 entrance. We've seen so many churches on our trip that this was a nice change. Not only did you see the new and old cathedrals from an up top view, but you were able to see the outside rooftop church views, inside bell tower and beautiful city views. The climb is not bad and as mentioned... More

Climbing this tower of one of my most enjoyable activities in this gorgeous city. You can take it slow, there is a good handrail, while climbing up. At several intervals there is a beautiful room to sit and to see interpretive displays about the history and use of the tower. You can even sit and listen to beautiful music. It... More

A genuine highlight in a beautiful city. Very interesting history, wonderful views, lots of exhibits and all for €3.75. Admittedly you need to be able to climb lots of steps but so worthwhile.

If there is nothing else, do the climb. The stairs are quite steep and narrow. If you are of average fitness, shouldn't be an issue. The views are BREATH TAKING.

For a small €3.75 entrance fee, this is a worthwhile visit. The long climb is split on different levels by rooms with side exhibitions. The last climb up to the tower is regulated by a traffic light system - don't be tempted to jump the lights if they are against you as you risk meeting someone coming in the opposite... More

Climbing up the Salamanca cathedral tower will reward you a unique view the rooftops of the cathedral, overlook cathedral interiors from balconies, watching bells ring in the tower, and views of city of Salamanca.

We have been in Salamanca many times but never got round to taking the tour up the Ieronimus. Really glad we did so on this occasion. We know the city fairly well but this was the first time to see it from such a great height. The tour is only 3.75 euro and it is divided up between walking up... More

The tour is well-constructed, with interesting content. The views are fanstastic, over the cathedral itself, and the old city, and further afield. There's a useful traffic-light system on some staircases.
