Definitely worth the climb but not for the unfit! 207 steps with no real stopping places and they are very steep. But worth the 2 euro charge just for the views.

This is an old tower by a beautiful cathedral. The trek up the stairs is not bad if you have energy, didn't count, but it's about 8 flights. There is a big area at the top with a bell in the center. The view of the entire city is very nice. It's not extremely tall, but it's a fun thing... More

Miguelete is the tallest tower and because of which nothing can offer you a view as good as it. There is of course a climb involved to reach the top for the view but then the fruit of this effort is a good view of Valencia. You get to watch the entire city from up here and the interiors are...

It's not expensive, there aren't really a lot of stairs so it's not tiring and once you reach the top, there's a 360 degrees view of the entire city. There is no need to climb on any other towers because this one is the highest. I really enjoyed those views and it was fun recognizing and/or guessing what parts of... More

There are many reasons to climb the 217 (whatever) spiral steps to the top of the Cathedral tower (Miguelete) in Valencia. One is to test your cardio vascular health. But you can do that lots of places. The main reasons are to get the bird's eye view of Valencia. You can orient yourself pretty well up there, with a view... More

You really get a special impression of the City. Better go up AFTER having visited some parts of the City Centre

This tower is definitely worth the 207 steps it takes to get to the top and the bell rang for us surprising other tourists. You get a good view all around Valencia

...you will be rewarded with a 380 view of Valencia! It's a bell tower, with a stone winding staircase to the top but it is worth it. Plus, when you're done, you can go down half a block for some very good gelato as a reward for your effort!

One of the best things about Valencia is the mix of old and new. From the top of the Miguelete you can see both. Don't forget to wander around the nearby old town to get a feeling of medieval Spain.
