“good views over city and former riverbed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

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.

“City gates with great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

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 can see a surprisingly long way!

“Favorite Monument in Valencia”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

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 distance of course of many other great sites.

“Quick visit, the better of the two towers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

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.

“Great views from the top”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

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....
