The exhibition route allows us to walk on the roofs of the Cathedral on a metallic footbridge over the side nave of the New Cathedral at the point where it joins the Old Cathedral. We can almost touch the Torre del Gallo and look out over the Patio Chico. This gives a new perspective of the cathedral ensemble and views over the city.
The extraordinary configuration of the cathedral ensemble of Salamanca, which includes two cathedrals back to back, is without doubt one of the peculiarities that makes this one of the most original cities in Europe, as very few capitals retain two cathedrals. The route along this outside platform, on the very roofs of both cathedrals, allows the observance of this idiosyncrasy.
The metallic footbridge over the roofs of the side nave of the New Cathedral allows us to appreciate the connection between both cathedrals, and also takes us so close to the Torre del Gallo that we can almost touch it and allows us to look out over another evocative corner of the city, the Patio Chico.
