Great view from the towers, but lots of steps.

These two large gateway towers are impressive, but now stand alone. There is not much to see inside the towers, but climbing the stairs (all 147 of them - though I may have miss... read more

Only a couple of euros each to climb to the top. A lot of stairs and for those with a problem with heights the low walls and ralings may be an issue. The views from the top are ok.

Great views from above, free excursion at the weekend, I think amazing to think this place stands since medieval times. You can even see the traces of ancient warfare.

These two large gateway towers are impressive, but now stand alone. There is not much to see inside the towers, but climbing the stairs (all 147 of them - though I may have miss counted!) gets you a great view over the city.

Often ignored by tourists who tend to bustle past en route to the silk market or the indoor commercial market. The only surviving towers of the old walled city, in which you can climb a narrow and steep spiral staircase for a stunning and hugely interesting view.

This is one of two massive towers which are the only surviving parts of the medieval city walls. This was the first attraction we visited and as such it was a very good way of getting oriented in the city as the view from the top of the tower is excellent. It costs EUR 2 to go in.

A challenging climb as the stairs have limited handrails (by British standards). The view from the top was well worth the climb.

Worth a look, climb to the top and see a great view. Riverbed park, cobblestone streets, historic buildings, cute cafes and shops all in this area

This imposing Gothic style gate w/ two polygonal shaped towers was built between 1392-98 and is situated in the northeastern part of the old historical center of Valencia. It was one of 12 gates of the ancient Christian Wall that was never used for the intended defensive purposes and because of its monumental stone staircase & attractive limestone covered façade...

Climb up the tower,to get a good overview of Valencia city. It will help you during your walks (: Entrance is low: 1 euro, but you get a very good idea of how the city is arranged. Good combi with the Carmen area.
