VALENCIA – Catedral De Valencia – The Holy Chalice

The Holy Chalice is the very cup used by Jesus during the Last Supper.
If the cup is real, whether it still exists and where exactly it is located are two enduring questions with competing answers. One longstanding claimant is the Holy Chalice of Valencia, stored in the golden “Chapel of the Holy Grail” and guarded behind glass in the city’s Gothic cathedral (Catedral de Valencia).
The Valencia Chalice doesn’t actually look like something from the first century, but the holy part is specifically the cup at the top, carved from a chocolatey-red agate; the base, handles, and jewels were added centuries later. How it got to Spain, and into the hands of the cathedral, is a long and complicated history. One theory is that the holy cup was taken by St. Peter to Rome, and some time later by a Vatican soldier to Spain, where it landed at Valencia Cathedral.
Coin is available in Museo Catedral de Valencia.
