Just €5 to climb the tower. Around 220 steps. Better to be fit but not super fit. Great view of the bells on the way up then great views all round of the city from the top. Well worth the price and the climb.

What a climb to the top but what a view when you get there. It was well worth the physical effort and there are plenty of interesting features to stop and investigate on the way. There is a wonderful panorama over the city from the...More
