Valencia Cathedral, Valencia

4.3
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 with apparently original Holy Grail! Cheap entrance ticket includes voice guidance system in 6 languages including English. Absolutely recommended.
  • Best atraction in Valencia. Here is kept Holy Grail, besides him there are many other things to watch. Admission is 5 euro. Square around the cathedral is very beautiful.
  • What a building this is! One word, STUNNING! A MUST SEE place to visit when in Valencia. Worth paying the extra to go up to the top. 207 steps to climb on a spiral staircase but the view is breathtaking, (unless it's just because you're worn out when you get there!).
  • Gorgeous place. The cost was well worth it, as the cathedral was incredible and the museum is so modern and clean. One of the best I have ever seen.
  • It's worth to take an hour and a half to enjoy numerous treasures listening to the audio guide. Enjoyable!

Where to stay in Valencia

The Valencia city center is hugged by a river bed-turned park that leads down to the City of Arts and Sciences and harbor area. Stay along the river to be no more than a pleasant stroll away from some of the main neighborhoods and attractions. The popular El Carmen neighborhood, one of the oldest in the city, is known for its bohemian atmosphere and historical architecture, making it a popular area for daytime tourism and lively nightlife. For a selection of newer hotels and well-known shops, you can opt to stay in the city's commercial district of Colon Street, only a short walk from the old center and well-connected by the metro. For a laid-back, sun-filled retreat, El Cabanyal is a quiet residential neighborhood near the city's main beach.
