UNESCO World Heritage

The doorway at the entrance to the tower is one of the most interesting doorways of the whole building, not only for the style of the archway that lends it its beauty, but also for the delicacy of the sculptures that adorn it: intricate leaf details, an angel bearing a band inscribed with Ave María and a winged female form with a basilisk at its breast.
