Chapel of the Holy Grail, Valencia

(4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Constructed just 24 years after the Christian Reconquista, Chapel of the Holy Grail contains one of the world's four contenders for the actual Holy Grail--and the one most widely defended by historians. The chalice, which you'll see in a glass case, dates back to the first century, and has been used as the papal chalice by many popes--most recently Benedict XV. Both guided and audio tours are available through the stately Gothic church, which was constructed hastily in 1262 in order to replace the ancient Visigothic cathedral turned mosque being torn down next door. Two more centuries of expansions contributed early Romanesque, Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical elements to the basilica. Look out the tower windows for a birds-eye view of the city.

  • It is a chapel to the right of the door of the Cathedral through the plaza de la Virgen. Usually closed, and it is very difficult to know when visiting the but really if you access it is precious to part of the religious claims of the visit.

  • Visit the Interior of the Cathedral of Valencia is extra and it is not a, so called, offers, but of something more ... However, with this card, you are entitled to visit the chapel of the Holy Grail. Definitely the most popular religious complex that truly deserves.

  • We only went to see the Holy Grail. On the foot path of Indiana Jones and the chapel itself is beautiful with Gothic style interior and some interesting painting. At 5€ the visit it is worth it  more »
