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.

This Gothic steeple bells and 11 of the same style, has three stories whose plan is octagonal, was originally used as a refuge in the church for those who were persecuted. It is dark and thick walls in whose second floor was the house who took care of ringing the bells, and the third is the bell itself, which is accessed through a hole in the roof. The great bell that crowns it is called Miguel in 1418 because it was blessed on St. Michael, say it is one of the largest in Spain and is what gives the place its name.

Este campanario de estilo gótico y 11 campanas del mismo estilo, tiene tres pisos cuya planta es octogonal, fue utilizado originariamente como refugio de la iglesia para aquellos que eran perseguidos. Es de paredes muy anchas y oscuras en cuyo segundo piso se encontraba la casa del quien se ocupaba de tocar las campanas y el tercero es el campanario propiamente dicho, al que se accede por un agujero en el techo. La gran campana que lo corona es llamada Miguel porque fue bendecida en 1418 el día de San Miguel, dicen que es una de las más grandes de España y es la que da nombre al lugar.

The Miquelite tower is a tower of St. Mary's Cathedral. It also reached by the cathedral (access is limited, I think this is 1euros50 if I remember correctly). Atop the tower is the Gothic spire of the cathedral. This in turn allows you to see the city of Valencia 51 meters high. Imagine the view that we can have at this height. You will show through against the 207 steps of the tower (ouch). Each time the bell rings, it's always surprising when one just below.

La tour Miquelite est une tour de la cathédrale Sainte Marie. On y accède d'ailleurs par cette cathédrale (l'accès est payant, je crois que c'est 1euros50 si mes souvenirs sont bons). Au sommet de la tour se trouve le clocher gothique de la cathédrale. Cette tour permet de voir la ville de Valencia de 51 mètres de haut. Je vous laisse imaginer la vue que l'on peut avoir à cette hauteur. Il vous faudra par contre montrer les 207 marches de la tour (aïe !).

Chaque heure, le clocher sonne, c'est toujours surprenant lorsqu'on se trouve juste en dessous.

La Torre Miguelete, is located in the city of Valencia in Spain. It is part of Holy Mary Cathedral of Valencia and offers an impressive panoramic view of the city and its huerta. The rise is due to the physical width of steps and stairs, though the view from the top is well worth the effort. The building is impressive is its architecture is octagonal with a bell at the top. For information, opening hours are relatively low.

La Torre Miguelete, est située dans la ville de Valence en Espagne. Elle fait partie de la cathédrale sainte marie de valence et offre une vue panoramique impressionnante de la ville et sa huerta. L'ascension est physique étant donné la largeur des marches et des escaliers, néanmoins la vue au sommet vaut vraiment la peine de l'effort. La bâtisse, est imposante est son architecture est octogonal avec au sommet un campanile. Pour info les horaires d'ouverture sont relativement réduits.

Located in the heart of the old town, the Micalet could be a monument to himself, as he is known and visited in Valencia, but it is not so: The Micalet is the name affectionately given by the Valencian the steeple of his great Cathedral. Without even going into the church building, it is possible to visit only the octagonal tower and climb the hundreds of steps to the platform, located 51 meters in height, which offers a panoramic view of the entire the city.

Situé au cœur de la vieille ville, le Micalet pourrait être un monument à lui seul, tant il est connu et visité à Valence, mais il n'en est rien: Le Micalet est le nom affectueusement donné par les valenciens au clocher de sa grande cathédrale. Sans même entrer dans l'édifice religieux, il est possible de visiter seulement la tour octogonale et de grimper ses centaines de marches jusqu'à la plate-forme, située à 51 mètres de hauteur, qui offre une vue panoramique sur l'ensemble de la ville.

The Miguelete or Micalet is the tower that overlooks the [then = 11811] St. Mary's Cathedral in Valencia [/ then] and offers a magnificent view over a large part of the historic center of Valencia. It 'octagonal and was built between the XIV and XV century by Andrés Juliá.
