We love climbing towers, and we had fun climbing the Miguelete, the bell tower of the Valencia Cathedral. The belfry was built in the 13th and 14th centuries, to access the tower take the left-hand door at the cathedral, just inside is the ticket office where you buy your inexpensive ticket for two euros. The gothic style tower is a... More

It takes indeed 207 steps and it can be busy on the narrow stairs. But at the end it is possible also for older people.Rewarding view.

It's a good climb up all those steps but worth it. Nice 360° view and a close look at the Bell. Access is inside the cathedral.

The Migeulete tower has 207 stairs... was done in the XV century and is the best way to see the whole city of Valencia. If you get there at 6:30 PM, it's perfect since it won't be too hot to climb the stairs.

If you're looking for a nice view of the city, you have to climb the 207 stairs in here. Be careful, the stairs in the top are narrower.

Go early if the the summer and take pictures in all directions. If you arrive on the hour you will catch the bell ringing.

We were dropped off near the Old Town center and immediately walked to the Cathedral and this tower. For 2E you can walk the spiral staircase to the top. Normally, that number of steps would not be a problem, but you need to come to a complete stop when meeting someone going the other way. But, the views are well... More

Yes it is steep, yes you have to climb 200+ steps but it is worth it. It is only 2 euros! The views are very good. You can see all the way to the mountains and the sea, pretty much all of Valencia! But you should climb the tower of Santa Catalina too because from there you can see the... More

This is a great attraction and would attract 5 stars if it weren't for the steps being very difficult to ascend and descend, there is very little room to pass each other. But the dice with danger is very worthwhile to get the amazing 360 view of the City, as far as the Port. Minimal charge (to a very stern... More
