The Cathedral of Valencia is in Valencia and was built between 1262 and 1356 and is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. The building is an unusual mix of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque styles, and has also served as a mosque during the Moorish occupation.

Valencia Cathedral houses many art treasures, including several paintings by Francisco Goya, but is best known as the repository of a "Holy Grail". This chalice, which broke in 1785 but fell again restored, located in Valencia since the 15th century.
