“Nice Cathedral - excellent outside, ok inside”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Well, the outside facade is very beautiful, it's the central attraction of the city - but there isn't that much inside - not to mention it was closed 2 of the 3 times we attempted to go in...

“Take the Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Rather than just wandering by yourself, be sure and take the self-guided tour. We were amazed to find that the Holy Grail is there . . . in its own chapel. A noted historian believes it is authentic. The museum is not always open, so be sure and check the times before you schedule your visit. There is so much to take in, it's overwhelming.

“absolutely must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

The tours are excellent, with a quiet reverence encouraged by the use of discreet microphones by the guides. The are art is priceless,and the capillas (chapels) are breathtaking.
Really, really a great connection to Spanish history

“You've got to go here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

How can you come to Valencia and not see the Holy Grail? Yes, really. The Holy Grail. The one you thought was lost? The subject of all those great quest stories? Yup. Right there in the cathedral. It was probably sent to Valencia in the third century from Rome by St. Lawrence (a native of Valencia) during one of the periods of persecution of the Christians.

“Amazing cathedral”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012 via mobile

It was an amazing cathedral with outstanding architecture. It had a lot of art to see. There was also rooms within the cathedral that you can see. These rooms also had exhibits that you can see. One of the rooms had the Holy Grail.

The only set back is that there a lot of tourist groups there and it is at times to enjoy it without a group of people around you. Other than that this is a must see if your visiting Valencia.
