The total height of the bell level is open. Inside are some supports on which to hang the bells and they previously hung from the openings, but now there is a better view.

The roofing of the tower was carried out with an eight-sided vault that sprang from the center of the sides and also four diagonal arches in the corners. The spaces between these arches and the angles of the tower are closed up with stepped vaults. At present, this roofing has been substituted by a concrete structure that has eight flat surfaces that serve to support the roof.
