The Torre del Miguelete is one of the most iconic monuments in all of Valencia. El Miguelete stands directly beside the grand Valencia Cathedral right at the heart of the city’s historic center. Its construction dates back to between the 14th and 15th centuries when it was first worked on by several architects. The Gothic-style bell tower stands over 207 feet above the ground and contains exactly 207 steps that tourists must climb in order to reach the top. The seemingly never-ending spiral staircase eventually opens up to a wonderful space up top where you get to see the grand bell up-close while enjoying a breathtaking view of Valencia. You can even see the sea out in the distance.

For more than a decade, I have been documenting my misadventures on The Rocky Safari while exploring destinations all around the world. I may be an introvert at heart, but I love stepping outside of my comfort zone. Thanks to numerous solo travel adventures, I've learned to embrace long-term travel as a lifestyle. Now my primary goal is to help you explore unusual places, travel longer, and design a remote lifestyle.
