  • A fantastic visit, well worth the reasonable entrance fee. You can also pay separately to climb the tower. It is a pretty steep climb but the views are worthwhile. The audio guides are free as part of the tour and definitely worth using. You can do them in any order which can be helpful when trying to avoid the larger tour groups. Lots of history and some amazing things to see.
  • Fascinating. History through headphones definitely necessary. Incredible how wealthy the Church was! still is! Climb up the 207 steps to the bell tower is a must to view Valencia, although it is steep at the top. Bell still tolls. We experienced 2 pm - thankful it wasn't later or noon.
