4.1/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • Located within the Cathedral of Valencia, this small chapel houses, according to the legend, the Holy Chalice. Completely Gothic architecture, the Chapel is very nice, and "famous" calyx is seen through a glass. A visit is worthwhile.
