TEN REASONS FOR VISITING “IERONIMUS” AT LEAST ONCE A YEAR.
Visiting IERONIMUS lets you:
1. DISCOVER new parts of the Cathedral(of the cathedral complex), one of the most impressive and one of the most mysterious in both Spain and in Europe. Both spectacular and surprising.
2. DISCOVER new views over the city, in all directions, north, east, south and west.
3. UNDERSTAND what cultural heritage is and what it means. The role it plays, the invisible ties it has with the very hearts of the people.
4. FAMILIARISE yourself with the best part of Salamanca’s history; its origins. The name comes from Jerónimo de Perigueux: The Bishop to El Cid, from the period of resettlement headed by Raimundo de Borgoña.
5. CAPTURE the deep sense of ARCHITECTURAL CULTURE. An endless walk through different architectural styles, resources, projects and creators (the most relevant of their time)
6. In times of tyranny of immediateness, IERONIMUS is being able to CELEBRATE time and its future.
7. DISCOVER the STRENGTH of resistance. Or the story of how the tower survived the Lisbon earthquake.
8. LEARN, as a visitor, how to truly appreciate the cathedrals. They are so much more than cultural venues, they represent the Christian spirituality which is available to all.
But above all, IERONIMUS:
9. HELPS to CREATE a city, a shared identity, for both visitors and local residents. IERONIMUS is a point of reference for the whole of Spain and one we should be proud of.
10. Is PEACE and SPIRITUALITY. IERONIMUS is always the ideal place to unburden both body and mind, especially in these complicated moments and times of uncertainty. It is a beacon and a home, peace and shelter.
Ieronimus is a unique experience that is beyond compare. Every year, for a whole lifetime.
