An arch-shaped passageway bridges the 800m gap between the palace and the Cathedral. The palace was given by King Alfonso VIII to Archbishop Don Rodrigo Jimenez de Rada. It has been much modified over the years by order of different Cardinals. The architect Ventura Rodriguez was responsible for the facade that looks onto Calle Arco de Palacio, the internal patios and the part of the building now used as the Archbishop's home. The passageway that joins the palace to the Cathedral was built at the time of Cardinal Sandoval. Visitors are not admitted.
