The Cathedral of Valencia is located on the Plaza de la Reina and was founded in the 13th century on the site of a mosque just after the reconquest of Valencia by the Christians. It has a mix of many different styles such as Neo-classic, Gothic and Baroque.

The bell tower is one of the most famous images of Valenica but what is it's main attraction is something else: just inside the entrance you can see a what is said to be the holy grail. It is thought to have been used in the Last Supper by Christians. This is a claim that the church supports. So far every other claim has been cast out apart from the one here in Valencia and one other.
