One of our favorite churches during our 10 day visit to Spain. So incredible and peaceful, and absolutely beautiful inside and out!

The cathedral,like many others, has seen many variations according to the different times of its construction, but the Seu of Valencia has many facets, displaying on the outside columns reminding the visitor of Roman times, roman and gothic porticos, and a baroque facade. The whole building is nevertheless very harmonious and overlook the Square of the Reina on one side,and... More

Cathedral is a mixture of different architectural styles. You can get special feeling if you visit during Sunday service - we did so. What impressed me most, even thoug it is quite small, was the holy grail. It is difficult to observe it behind three glasses, but there is a souvenir shop nerby and you can see photos of it.... More

I don't think any of the main European cathedrals will disappoint anyone who has an appreciation for the amount of resources that goes into building and renovating the major houses of Catholic worship. I found the audio guide, which is included in the price of admission (5 Euros regular, 3.50 reduced) highly informative and will help you appreciate all that... More

The Valencia Cathedral, also, known as Saint Mary's Cathedral is located in a lovely square in the center of Valencia. This cathedral houses the Chapel of the Holy Grail and is well worth a visit. The chalice or Holy Grail has been located in the cathedral since 1437. It is protected behind a glass enclosure inside a small stone chapel... More

One of best cathedrals I've visited in Europe. Audio guide is included in entrance fee and is well worth it - gives a great short description of the fascinating paintings around the cathedral. Visit first thing in the morning when it's quiet for the best experience - it opens at 10am and is full of tourist groups by midday.
