Las monedas de Caronte


Visiting the crypt of the old Cathedral of Santa María, viewers are impressed by the space and particularly the history of the corpse with the coin in the mouth, payment to Charon, who guided with his boat the souls of the deceased along the Hades, the underworld. Here is the sea of coins, witnesses of the time and of the human condition.

Departing from that sea and assisted by the light and music. a climate is generated which during some minutes enables to see the Crypt from other perspective.
