  • 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...  more »
  • It is worth climbing! Very narrow stairs, there is a good time to get up to above... bring water!

  • Armed with breath because 207 steps winding staircases and quite steep, are a nice firm, which pays off once you get to the top with a view a 360deg for Valencia.

  • 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.
