Great holmertz 2018-10-13 2:22

Hello Jorge,
We can see that this wall has not been restored or cleaned for quite a while. While it is sad to see the old sculptures slowly degrading, it is amusing to watch the grass growing high up on the cathedral. It's a very nice close view of some of these beautiful statues and ornaments, so easily overlooked if you are a tourist in a hurry.
Kind regards,

many of these sculptures were damaged during civil war, by soldiers of cromwell who used them as a target.
not for chance he was took off his tomb and executed... too late, but he was.. as a lover or arts I hate iconoclasts.
