A good way to spend 30 mins. Buy token at the tourist info place and then zip on up to the top of the tower. It was a little foggy but I imagine the views are unbeatable on a clear day

Lovely view, not too heavy when walking up the stairs but I wouldn't recommend it for people over 70 years old.

The tower offers a wonderful view of the city. Make sure that you have comfortable shoes - the steps are steep. The church also deserves to be visited.

Nice view from the top of the tower but getting there is torture for people who are either clautrophobic or not very fit.

You won't be able to stop looking at it. Easy to find just by the main centre of town. A great example of cathedral architecture

Does require a steep climb but offers great views of the city and its surroundings. Would recommend. Be sure to time your climb as the bells can be quite loud!

You can visit 3-4 different levels in the tower and at the last one (approx 60m high) you have the... More

Amazing nice tower with view after some climbing. It is the most well known monument of the city which you cannot miss.
