Valencia Cathedral, Valencia

(4.2/5 based on 3,400+ 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.

  • Built on a mosque which was built on a Visigothic Church. Gothic style, amazing brick vaults, chapels covered in neo-classical style. Spectacular Chapel of el Santo Cáliz (look where so much time looking for it and was here!), a gem of Gothic. Impressive octagonal dome which illuminates the altar. Many incentives: two paintings by Goya, the tombstone where Ausiàs March, the altarpiece of the chancel, the Gothic pulpit from which preached San Vicente Ferrer, the museo-tesoro of the Cathedral is buried. It is worth paying the 7 euros from the entrance (with audioguide), €5,50 reduced entry, and spend an hour long visiting this gem.

  • Free to visit, beautiful church, also in. What I noticed was that there are many devout people are in Valencia. Long time since I've seen people in emotion at a God's image.

  • the Cathedral is really worth attention - the interior is amazing, especially the pictures of Francis Goya. Holy Grail appeared to be very small.
  • Nice cathedral. You can climb on the tower here to get a good view of the city.
  • a beautiful church where the spanish people pray on sunday evening outside to god...
  • 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.
  • A great view from the top of the bell tower and only €2.
