Even though the MIGUELETE tower forms a part of the building of the cathedral of Valencia, it needs a special mention as if offers a totally different activity and offers a different type of satisfaction which might not have to be related to architecture or spirituality. So climb he 207 steps that lead you to the top pf the structure and feel the fresh air of Valencia calmly slap your face as your get a glimpse to some great scenery of the city with privilege bird?s eye view.

The construction of this structure dates back to the year 1381 and holds a big bell called the MIQUEL, which is from where it gets the name of MIGUELETE. A Gothic octagonal bell tower which has become Valencia?s much loved symbol.

This tower can be accessed everyday of the year. The visitors can see all the rooms of the tower. The entrance fees costs around 2 Euros for adults and 1 Euro for children.

Address: Plaza de la Reina - Valencia
