(4.2/5 based on 3,000+ 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.

  • The Cathedral is beautiful, well worth a visit; Council the audioguide, available at a nominal price.

  • During the tour of the old city is impossible not to visit the Cathedral ... armed with audio guide in Italian we spent a pleasant hour between chapels altar and Holy Grail all Gothic and neoclassical!!

  • It is not worth the penalty 5e by see the Cathedral... If you can cuelate. It is pretty, and has many details and very good care, but 5e seems to me to be excessive

  • 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.
