  • Migalete-the name of the Bell Tower of the Cathedral of Valencia. Named named Chief of the Bell. Organized by the paid access. Climb hard-narrow spiral staircase, but the kind of gorgeous
    View original
  • If you want to admire the panorama of Valencia Council to ascend the Miguelete ... knowing that there are so many steps to the top! The tour lasts more or less 30 minutes (then depends on the time that is lost on)!

  • 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 ...  more »

  • Great architectural masterpiece, build on the ruins of an old mosque, that explaining also the particular shape of the cathedral. It has three wonderful entry gates, each one in a different style and interesting story behind. Inside you can discover lots of stories about history of Valencia and not only. One side construction also houses the Holy Grail. Very beautiful paintings, sculptures are to be discovered with any step.
  • Beautiful cathedral in Valencian Gothic style. very nice interior, while the exterior is suffering from a real façade, remarkable portal of lions and dell'Almoina portal. Do not miss the climb the tower! time to visit about 60 minutes @gargio76
  • Really great experience, there's a museum too and the view from the tower is really great (207 steps, beware!). The ticket is expensive, 6€ for the cathedral and 2€ for the tower (two different tickets).
  • Interesting to climb the bell tower. Entrance the church area a bit expensive.
  • We were lucky enough to have our wedding there : don Antonio have been super kind and helpful, the organist was great, and the chapel of santo caliz is truly amazing.
