This carefully restored section of city wall and gate is the best way to get up high over the city with unobstructed views in all directions. It's certainly impressive just standing under such an imposing structure, much less walking on top of it. Valencia isn't Paris or Venice from a city view standpoint, but it's worth a climb.

There are superior views of the rooftops from these towers. And this is also a good point to observe activities in the Turia riverbed (three footbal fields directly below). Read some history about this towers and imagine how it was when this was still part of city walls.

One of two sets of gates remaining from the medieval City of Valencia. They make a lovely photo and there are great views to be had from the top. Warning: there are a lot of steps and they are not for the faint-hearted or infirm. Perfectly manageable for most people though - do it on a clear day and you... More

I really thoroughly enjoyed going up to the top of the Towers, and can say its one of my favorite places that I went because of the views on top. A lot of stairs, so be forewarned, but worth it once you get up on top. You don't need more than 15 or 20 minutes there and it's within walking... More

The Sarranos towers are an impressive site, another on the list if you've only a couple days. Use your VLC card to get free entry. The towers are steep and there are lots of steps. No access for wheelchair or if you've difficult walking. Glass panels on the battlements are a nice touch.

Excellent views, glass panels in the floor were interesting..... Cheap to get into, not for the faint hearted or those who suffer from vertigo also if you are not physically able, this attraction is not for you - there are no disabled friendly points to it....

A couple of mdieval towers that were used in the past as the main gates to enter into Valencia. Today you can clealy imagine its utilities at those times, given the size of the towers and their priviledged location.

Beautiful structure that overlooks the Rio Turia and the Central part of Valencia. Worth the hike up the steps.

I overcame my vertigo to walk up the wide steps to the battlements - a great view of the old city, park and new city beyond. Unfortunatly some of the darker corners have been frequented by those caught short but otherwise clean and well maintained attraction.
