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.

  • Admission includes audio guide but that turned out to be a download on your phone. Irritating if you don't have earbuds. Audio tracks informative but most points of interest don't have audio...

  • This cathedral is a worthwhile visit, especially the exhibits on the right as you move through the building.

  • Friendly staff, spoke English and could explain the entry fees and the layouts for the tours. The Cathedral is exquisitely decorated as can be expected from any Catholic cathedral but what I really liked was the more museum-like exhibition of art, books, robes and ritual equipment in one of the side halls. There's also access to underground crypts with (disturbing alert) skeletal remains. Another point of interest is the mummified hand of San Vicente, very eerie to see.
  • Beautiful place, impressive history and a good museum. Of course we came for the holy grail and were not disappointed. It is a large church, large enough to make a separate part for worship and another for paid visits. It is a bit pricy, but seniors get a discount;-)
