Views and bells

Miguelete Tower or Micalet tower (in Valencian) is known as the belfry of the Valencia Cathedral. It is a Gothic-style tower 51 meters tall (when we went up we had to stop a few times to get air), but I assure you it is worth since from above you can see all of Valencia.

The schedule is a bit tight (from 11:30 to 13:00), don’t believe that because the cathedral is open the tower will be too because it will surely be a let-down when we find it closed.

At specific times (such as the canonization of a saint) bell ringers ring the bells by hand, each one stands by one of the bells and plays a melody that can be heard for miles around. If we are visiting the tower at this moment they will let us stay to see how it’s done.

Bell tower

The bell tower of Valencia’s cathedral was built during the 14th and 15th centuries; it was the work of architect Andrés Julía. It’s a 50.85 high gothic style octagonal tower. The inside has a charcoal stairway that leads up to the terrace, where one can enjoy spectacular views of the city, the gardens, and the sea.

A valencian symbol

The Miguelete is the tower most identifiable with Valencia, and is considered the Gothic belfry of the Cathedral. From here you can see a panoramic view of Valencia. Its construction dates back to 1381. The top floor has arched windows and is crowned by a steeple from the eighteenth century. It rises to a height of 50.85 meters, and is named after one of its twelve bells, specifically the one that gives the hours, which was blessed on September 29, 1418, Saint Michaels Day, although the current one is from 1532.
