After class on Wednesday, I ventured off to Valencia's Old Town. There is a big bell tower next to the Cathedral, called Torre del Micalet. I climbed the 207 stairs of the narrow spiral staircase to the top of the tower. I almost opted out because it was 90 degrees outside, but I knew I would regret it if I didn't do it! Once I reached the top, I had a 360 degree view of Valencia (And there was a nice breeze up there!). It was beautiful. On one side, I could see the mountains, and on another, the Mediterranean Sea. I am glad I did this later on in my trip, because now that I know where everything is around the city, I was able to appreciate the view much more!
On Thursday, I had class all day per usual, and then spent the evening starting to study for finals before I left for my weekend getaway to Barcelona, which I will write about in my next post! :)
