One of the most photographed places of San Sebastian and with its 75 meters high, one of its highest points, is the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd. Practically visible from any point of the city, tourists who have come and will come in 2019 to the city will find it surrounded by scaffolding, as if it were the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.
During this year, the façade of the temple will be in works for the rehabilitation of it and also of the central tower. The novelty in the reform will consist of the creation of a 360º viewpoint at 47 meters high that everyone can access through a metal staircase to contemplate the widening of the city. It can also be done free of charge.
The restoration, in addition to the stone blocks, will be carried out in the 10 bells that presided over the cathedral, the largest of which is 1,700kg.
The construction of the temple started in 1888 and finished in 1897 . However, the Cathedral category was not granted until 1953. It is currently the seat of the Diocese of San Sebastian.
