  • You thought it was less tiring but instead to make about two hundred steps there came the pain also because who went down was on the same side of the ones who were ascending and therefore the scale narrowed. However arrived on the show is almost unique is worth it.

  • Famous Miguelete is the Bell Tower of the Cathedral, is very cute, but also you can upload and enjoy the views of the city.

  • The Miguelete Bell Tower of the Cathedral of Valencia and to access the belvedere on the city you pay 2 euros per person. The Hill is composed by ben 207 steps and you climb up a spiral staircase that narrows gradually getting quite tiring especially because I often meet people who come down but ... Once at the top the view of Valencia is really nice!

  • 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.
