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.

This one won't be for everybody. It has your typical circular staircase, with very narrow treads on the inside. Not a problem unless you are passing people going the other way, but a little care makes it easy to navigate for everyone. Very cheap entry (2 euros I think) and about 200 stairs to the top. Once you get there,... More

This is a good point at which to begin your visit to Valencia. You get an excellent view of the city from the Miguelete and get a sense of where everything is. It is a bit of a haul walking up the 200 steps, but worth it once you are at the top. Only two euros.

If you are in Valencia, be sure to check out the old town and specifically the La Catedral de Valencia with it's wonderful bell tower El Miguelete. Entrance is very reasonable at no more than $5 per person. Climbing the 207 steps can be a tad tricky, especially if people are heading down from the tower as the staircase is... More

Just a couple of euros and lots of stairs to the top - in each case worth the effort while the views from the top are excellent.
