Watch the cult biblical cup of Jesus in the Valencian Cathedral. According to legend, it brings grace and prosperity to everyone who saw it.
Graal has overcome a long way for 700 years before shining on the altar of the Cathedral of Valencia.
According to legend, a translucent bowl, decorated with emeralds and gold, from which Jesus partook at the Last Supper, was taken to Rome. And only in 1424, the Holy Graal was donated to Valencia. Earlier, the bowl was an attribute of religious processions. But one day it was dropped, and after the restoration it was decided to place it under the glass as a cultural relic of the temple.
How to do?
1. Get into the cathedral through the main entrance, called the Iron Gate.
2. Here, on the altar of the Holy Graal Chapel, you will find the cup. Everyone who sees it will be forgiven for his sins, and his table will never be empty.
