  • We visited the Tower as we heard it was worth the view, little did we realise there are 220 tiny steps to climb ! Not for claustophobics as the Tower is a very confined space, but when you reach the t...  more »

  • After the high of seeing the Holy Grail, the high of the tower is a let down. 2€ to walk up a claustrophobic, seemingly endless spiral staircase. At the top there is so much safety wire, it is difficu...  more »

  • Spectacular view. Entrance is separate from cathedral and will cost you €2. Be prepare to actually climb 207 steps. Bell rings each hour so might be interesting to visit at that time. Might be pretty busy.
  • Do not make the mistake and pay the 7€ for the cathedral itself but rather go directly to the worship area, where the entry for the tower is located. Here you just have to pay 2€ for the accent to a stunning view over the old town. Watch out not to stand under the bell at the full hour; that thing isn't there just for decoration.
  • You can have a great view of Valencia from top if this tower. It is a beautiful church too with great interior which can be visited with a fee. Nice square around it.
  • 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
  • It has to be on your to do list if you visit Valencia. The 207 steps you have to climb are worth for the impressive view you get from Valencia at 70m above the ground. It only costs 2€ to get to this high sightseeing spot.
