The basics

Right in the heart of Valencia’s beautiful old town, the cathedral—known as the Seu—is made up of a mix of different architectural styles. The central dome and tower are Gothic in style while the main entrance is baroque and several of the chapels date from the Renaissance period. Inside you’ll find a series of frescoes by renowned Spanish painter de Goya (housed in the de Borja chapel), plus, of course, the chalice itself, kept behind glass in the opulent Capilla del Santo Caliz near the main entrance.

Guided walking tours of the city regularly stop at the cathedral – and spending time with a local guide is a great way to learn about the Grail mystery. The Holy Grail is sacred, as it’s thought to be the chalice that Jesus drank from at the Last Supper. The chalice has been kept in the cathedral since the 15th century and is recognized as Holy Grail treasure by the Vatican. There’s only one other recognized grail relic in existence in the world – the other is a green glass dish known as the Sacro Catino, kept at Genoa cathedral in Italy.

Valencia’s Turia Gardens

Hop on a bike or lace up your sneakers and head to Valencia’s Turia Gardens – where a former riverbed has been transformed into a park with cafes, bike paths, and sports facilities. The park was created when the river was moved to the city outskirts following a devastating flood in the 1950s. Nowadays, shaded pathways and plenty of grass to relax on make the gardens a great place to visit after a morning’s sightseeing.
