More Than The Holy Grail


I took a photo of this sculpture in the Catedral de Valencia in Valencia, Spain.  

The Holy Chalice, also known as the Holy Grail, believed to be the vessel used by Jesus at the Last Supper, is housed in one of the chapels of the church.

The Holy Grail

Most of the cathedral was built between the 13th and 15th centuries in the Gothic style and primarily remains what is considered to be a Gothic building, but as the construction continued over the ages, the styles of construction also changed.

The Renaissance frescoes inside the church, the sculptures, and the ornate decor were all a feast for the eyes.  

This is definitely a site not to be missed.  There's so much more to see in their collection.
