Full description
Begin your tour with a brief introduction of the Chapel of Saint Blas and then go to the audiovisual room, furnished with part of a Flemish tapestries collection made by the brothers Bernart and Christian van Bruston. The tapestries show the history of Pompeius Magnus. Also in the room is a video subtitled in English that goes through the construction of the tower and its history. This video display was renewed in 2019 and is projected over three big walls surprising visitors with 3D animations, images from inside the cathedral, and even more special effects for 8 minutes.

After the video, head to the bell ringer’s house, a place preserved to reflect how the bell ringer and their family lived. There, a little staircase leads to the clock room, furnished with the rest of the Flemish tapestries and the clock mechanism, similar to that of the Puerta del Sol in Madrid.

From the bell ringer's house head to the bell tower and climb its 190 steps to the top. Be rewarded with a scenic view from the highest lookout point of the city. The will tour conclude at the top of the bell tower.
