Mind your head! The steps are okay, only the last few are a bit narrow. The view is impressive. You can see all of st Martin and quite a bit of the island. Ticket now €2,05

Quite a climb, but please believe me that it’s worth it. The traffic light system is a huge help - at least that’s one worry you don’t have! When you get to the top the view is stunning. You have the whole town at your...More

Had our young son with us on this trip, the walk up is causing some drops but the view is worth it. Magnificent view over St. Martin and the surroundings. No buggy parking so we used the church, at our own risk. Be aware of...More

We climbed the church tower (€2.05 each) and saw the beautiful views over St Martin. Try to avoid times when the bells will be chiming repeatedly - it’s very loud!

Worth the few euro to climb the stairs to the top and take in the view. Hold on to your hat or glasses when passing the bell windows as the wind will whip them off your head! 😂 Stairs are steep and narrow, traffic lights...More

This is a lovely view, and for the price (about €2.50) is worth going up if you’re in the area, although I wouldn’t necessarily come out of your way too much to visit this. It gives nice views of the town and also sea. Lots...More

Views from the top of st Martin de re are fantastic and well worth the climb on the rocketry wooded staircase. It is a steep climb but I followed children up and they managed no bother !!

Quaint, narrow wooden staircase to the bell tower, with a wonderful view of the bells and of the surrounding city. Sunset was beautiful from here.
