After visiting the plaza and going inside Valencia Cathedral we decide to queue for the bell tower and make the 207 step climb to the top. Luckily we were at the front of the queue when we went up so had a bit of a head start taking the spiral stair case which does feel like its never ending and is quite the exercise so I would warn those who might struggle with the challenge.
Once arriving at the top we were amazed by the 360 views of the city with plenty of photo opportunity's. There is a traffic light system to know when you can go back down as there is just the one staircase and at 2 euros each it it definitely a must!

Costing only two euros to enter, this is a seriously challenging spiral challenge. The stone steps are quite worn but are regular in height: thankfully there is an iron handrail on the outer side.
A flag system is meant to ensure that climbers don't meet descenders but this doesn't always work out...which makes for squashed meetings.
I counted 203 steps but apparently there are 207 to the top. From here there are wide-ranging views across the Old City but it would have been much more informative has there been a toposcope or written names of scenic buildings nearby.
I was quite proud of my old legs and lungs succeeding in doing the climb but somewhat mortified to learn that some brave fool had actually ridden his motorbike down all 207 of the narrow spiral steps!

This Valencian Gothic-style bell tower of Valncia Cathedral is 50.85 metres high. It was built between 1381 and 1424 and access to the tower is from inside the Cathedral by means of a spiral staircase with 207 steps. Entrance 2 eur and you can count on really nice view from the top.

At the end of 207 steps the rewards are unrivalled vistas over the lovely cityscape. Spiralling upwards, the staircase was fortuitously relatively empty at the time making the climb easier and more enjoyable.

Walking around the viewing platform it was fun identifying the landmarks on the skyline. Including the many church towers and steeples.

This is the best way to see the city from above! with only 2 Euros you can walk up to the cathedral bell tower. The climb is challenging but not prohibitive even for those who did not train.

From the terrace at the top you can enjoy an extraordinary panorama that sweeps from the infinity of the most blue sea to the green of barren mountains behind Valencia, with a privileged view over the rooftops.

From here you can easily distinguish all the sights! Attention to the tolling of bells that stuns! It takes at least 60/90 minutes to get on and enjoy the view! A must do! @ gargio76

A lovely old bell tower with 207-step spiral staircase inside, up to the summit with a powerful bell and great views of the city. It's definitely worth climbing up! The tickets cost virtually nothing, only 2 Euro/adult.

A definite must during a trip to Valencia! The stairs are steep and you need to be fit to reach the top, but it is worth it. The views are great and you can see a big part of the city.
Costs: €2

The views from the top of the tower make the challenging walk worthwhile. Make sure you take a bottle of water with you if you are a little out of condition. There are problems passing on the way up or down especially if following a school party. However this will be the best 2 euro you will ever spend.

the Miguelete ist THE top to gain a representative view of Valencia. From the suburbs down to the harbour/beach , this 360° panorama offers it all. And it's worth vevery step of the steep winding and narrow staircase. You can also observe the different types of "roofgarden architecture", from cosy and tasteful to "it's a roof, not more, not less".
Be aware that all of the sudden the bell will strike, quite deafening. "For whom the bell tolls"...so to say...;-)

We made the climb to the top of the tower - brilliant views although some help identifying points of interest at the top would be great - also a sign warning not to sit under the bells as it hits the hour!!! Social distancing means limited mis so will need to queue - traffic light system for steps works well. But it’s a very hard climb indeed; our legs aches for days after snd felt like jelly when we were down! It’s a lot of steps!!
