Valencia Cathedral, Valencia

(4.2/5 based on 3,200+ 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.

  • A stroll through the Cathedral very well organised, the entrance fee is including an audio guide that tells you step by step to add to the chapel where it is guarded (it is assumed) the Holy Grail! Very exciting!

  • The Cathedral is worthy of being visited by all who come to Valencia, are place to be. It's big, beautiful with excellent paintings and images to the q we always come to give thanks and ask at the same time. The dome is brilliant, exceptional

  • Very recommend to visit the Cathedral! It differs from many Gothic cathedrals. Inside there is a feeling of lightness, because it is very bright! I advise you also take an audio guide. It is particularly interesting to learn about St. Grail and the Chapel, where it is stored. Really worth a visit!

  • 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.
