I always love a good climb to see the cityscape or surrounding countryside. But the top of the Miguelete is a disappointment. First the balcony ledge is quite wide making it difficult to actually see the street level close to the tower. Second, there is wire netting above the ledge presumably to prevent people from jumping?? who knows? What it... More

The ticket lady was very busy with her smartphone. In fact, she was so busy that we had to interrupt here to buy our tickets to go up. But apparently, the thing she needed to do was so urgent that she continued using her smart phone without even looking to us or saying anything. Anyway, the tower offers a nice... More

Situated inside the Cathedral, the route to the top is arduous, but there are places for weary travellers to rest. The view at the top shows all vistas across Valencia. For only 2 euros, this is a pleasant diversion from old town ambling.

The views from the top are really nice and you can get a good sense of Valencia's layout and architecture - it really puts things in perspective. There are over 200 steps on a winding staircase, quite the climb, but the view is worth the climb and the 2 euro entry fee.

My 4 yo loved climbing Micalet! The next day when we passed it by she even asked to climb it again 😊 The view from the top is really nice 👍

If you want to have an idea of how beautiful Valencia is, you have to go up in The Miguelete!!! Climb all the stairs is hard but gratifying

It is quite tiring to get to the top but well worth the climb when you do. The city looks amazing and we were lucky to have sunshine. A good place to start your visit to understand the layout.

Exit the cathedral, pay your money and climb the staircase. Steep, long and winding, not for the fainthearted or unfit, but the reward is an excellent panoramic view of Valencia and beyond.

This octagonal Gothic style bell tower was built beween 1381-1429 and is part of the beautiful cathedral located in the heart of the historic center of Valencia. It replaced a smaller one that was demolished afterwards and is dedicated to Archangel Michael in reference to the largest bell weighing > 7500 kg that was installed in 1532. The spiral stone...

A long and, in places, very steep ascent up some deep stairs, the effort (and a two euro entry fee) does however get you a spectacular view of the city. Well worth climbing BUT there's only one way up and down so many opportunities to run into people trying to go the other way which, on a steep, narrow staircase... More
