Valencia Cathedral, Valencia
(4.2/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
Constructed over a few centuries, Valencia Cathedral is a Gothic monument that has been an icon in Valencia since the 13th century. Inside the cathedral, you'll find 15th-century paintings and the same grand architectural style notable in the building’s exterior. On display is one of the so-called holy chalices, which Christian historians claim may be the Holy Grail. The chalice dates back from the first century and was used by many popes as the official papal chalice.

  • Beautiful Cathedral which has already been much written. Disappointed only by the fact that none of the guides called has been able to answer my curiosity about the nature and origin of an object exposed in the charming Chapel of the Holy Grail. On the opposite wall to the Holy Chalice and under a chain of the port of Marseille is indeed hung a strange wooden object combining two balls chained. The guides and staff present (visiting and the phonograms are subject to charges) were not able to provide an answer. I enclose a photo.

  • Church to do mainly outside. The entrance ticket is € 6 for his visit and the Museum. To the right of the entrance is a replica metal.

  • The Cathedral is located in a place that already belonged in the past to a Roman temple and then to a Muslim mosque. Inside this emblematic building, a spiral staircase of 207 welcome, climbing through the Miguelete Tower leads to the terrace having a full view of the city. It is also the chapel of the Holy Chalice, not to be missed, that tradition has to be the Holy Grail used by Jesus at the last supper. The entrance has a cost of 6 euro Council to go in the morning to see the view going up through the Tower, because the cost is in part 2 euro, then return in the afternoon since access to the cathedral becomes free.

  • Great architectural masterpiece, build on the ruins of an old mosque, that explaining also the particular shape of the cathedral. It has three wonderful entry gates, each one in a different style and interesting story behind. Inside you can discover lots of stories about history of Valencia and not only. One side construction also houses the Holy Grail. Very beautiful paintings, sculptures are to be discovered with any step.
  • Beautiful cathedral in Valencian Gothic style. very nice interior, while the exterior is suffering from a real façade, remarkable portal of lions and dell'Almoina portal. Do not miss the climb the tower! time to visit about 60 minutes @gargio76
  • Really great experience, there's a museum too and the view from the tower is really great (207 steps, beware!). The ticket is expensive, 6€ for the cathedral and 2€ for the tower (two different tickets).
  • Interesting to climb the bell tower. Entrance the church area a bit expensive.
  • We were lucky enough to have our wedding there : don Antonio have been super kind and helpful, the organist was great, and the chapel of santo caliz is truly amazing.
