Visiting the Cathedral roofs is an unforgettable experience and an unique chance to watch Compostela from another point of view... Even though it's quite expensive (10 Euro per person) it includes a guided tour that'll make you discover a part of the Cathedral's history (the expected and the unexpected one).There are special discounts for groups, students, pilgrims and retired people. The timetable is from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m but it's suggested to reserve the visit in advance. The entrance is in the "Pazo de Xelmirez", on the left side of the Obradoiro facade.
