The Cathedral of Valencia is one of the cities most important attractions. A magnificient building which dates back to the time of the Roman empire in Valencia and features romanesque, gothic, baroque and neoclassical architectural style. Oneof its highlights include the treasury museum, which houses a huge gold monstrance and various paintings including a couple by Goya. The cathedral is also the location of the Holy Grail, the chalice that Christ used at the Last Supper. It is kept high up above the altar in its own chapel.
The cathedral is located right in the heart of the city in Plaza de la Reina and easy to reach.
