How was it done?

ClockTower Of Santiago Cathedral

Desarrolla will be responsible for restoration work on the clock tower of the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela.

Located at the intersection of the Squares of Platerías and Quintana, and more than seventy metres high, and also known as Trinity or Berenguela Tower, it was begun in 1316 at the instigation of Archbishop Rodrigo from Padrón, and finished by Berenguer Landoira, after whom its great bell was named.

The restoration work will be jointly financed by the European Region Management Fund and the Operative Program Feder Galicia 2007-2013.
