The domes of Valencia Cathedral seen from Miguelete stairs

Useful tips for your visit

  • The Cathedral and Miguelete’s opening times can be very confusing, as the schedules shift depending on the time of the year and day of the week. If you don’t want to keep in mind that many timetables, you can go anytime between 10:30 am and 4:30 pm from Monday to Saturday. If you go within this time frame, regardless of the season, you’ll be able to buy your ticket and have time for a full visit.
  • We also recommend you go to the Cathedral first, and the Miguelete afterwards, as it is normally open until later.
  • An audio guide is provided through a QR code you can scan with your phone. To be able to listen to it carefully, don’t forget to bring your earphones.
  • Remember not to skip the museum either, it has many interesting artefacts, including pieces by Spanish painter Francisco Goya .
  • The climb to the Miguelete bell tower is steep and long. The 207 steps are very narrow, so with that in mind, take it slow and bring some water.
The stairs of Miguelete
The spiral staircase to the Miguelete bell tower is quite long, with 207 steps.
  • Climbing up the steps of the Miguelete is of course worth it just to get a view of the city from high above. But if you can, we recommend you try to synchronise your visit to the top with the bell tolls, which are every hour. The sound when you’re up in the tower will be very evocative.
Miguelete bell
The Miguelete tower takes its name from the bell at its top - the Miguel.
