This is a beautiful church and if you only visit one religious building in Valencia it has to be this one. The holy grail is said to be housed there and the chalice is displayed for visitors to see. There are some amazing statues, paintings, carvings and stained glass.

Valencia cathedral doesn't look like too much like one. It's worth a round, though, for the various features that don't really go together...at least if you're used to northern European cathedrals.

Gorgeous cathedral and fascinating to see what has been deemed the real Holy Grail. When you're finished doing the tour there is free wifi and it's cool inside so stay for a while and enjoy the peace and quiet. €6 for an audio tour, loads of super info about valencian history.

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

This Cathedral is unique as it has 3 different styles of architecture seen throughout the build. It also has 3 different religious aspects, obviously predominately Catholic however there are signs of Judaism and Muslim designs/ meanings. Also just one more small thing, IT HOUSES THE HOLY GRAIL. Probably the coolest thing I've seen ( and I'm not religious ) The... More

There were a free area and a payed area. We visited both, it is beautiful but the pay area can be too much for large families.

Low level for a cathedral, but beautiful architecture on and around it. It was undergoing work when we were there so didn't get to see the inside.

At first I was a little suprised by the €6 entry fee until I realized it included an audio tour. I'm not normally one for audio tours but it really made for a great experience. It gives a good overview of the history and renovation efforts of the church areas while not getting too detailed or boring. The mix of... More
