Chapel of the Holy Grail, Valencia

(550+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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. Using our world travel planner, Valencia attractions like Chapel of the Holy Grail can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Not is if it will be the real Grail, but transports you to the Spielberg film. The Cup itself is a wonder.

  • Nice to see. Tip, go after haf six. The inaugural is then free. There is a mass in progress but in appropriate silence no problem.

  • Inside the Cathedral, you can access this small but magnificent chapel where everything is alluding to the Holy Grail. On an altar is the sacred chalice. Made in stone, decorated with figures painted in colors that topped columns. Beautiful
