Views from the top

Not for the faint of heart

It’s topped by an 18th century belfry. Visitors can access via a spiral staircase (not recommended for the faint of heart!).

The Miguelete is part of one of the most emblematic buildings of the city, the Cathedral, located in front of the Queen’s Square.

Micalet's origin

Why the name?

The bell tower is called Miguelete tower because Miguelete is actually the bell itself.

The name Miguel refers to the saint, who would protect the city from storms. Miguelete (Micalet, in Valencian) would mean “little Miguel”.
