Chapel of the Holy Grail, Valencia

4.2
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.

  • Is definitely the most beautiful part of the Cathedral of Valencia and certainly one that most impresses us Christians, not only because of the intrinsic meaning of "Goblet" However contested by at least 10 other places in the world but for the construction of the wall surrounding the Chapel, a true masterpiece of rare beauty that deserves far more time than that accorded by the audiovisual Guide.

  • It is believed that it is the real thing, but if any doubt is worth visiting this little chapel and admire the so-called most important relic of Christianity.
