It is reputedly the resting place of the Holy Grail, but whether you believe that or not the ornate Valencia Cathedral is worth a visit just because of its unique history and combination of architectural styles. Since it started out in 1262, it has shuffled back and forth from being a mosque to a Christian church, and has been added to accordingly in a variety of styles from Romanesque to Gothic, Baroque and even Moorish. It houses an interesting museum, treasury and the Holy Grail chapel. Most visitors, though, make a pilgrimage to the cathedral simply to climb its octagonal medieval tower, which provides a wonderful panorama of the city if you have the staying power to make it to the top of the winding staircase.
Opening times: The Cathedral is open daily from 7.30am to 1pm, and 4.30pm to 8.30pm. La Miguelete is open from 10am to 12.30pm, and 5.30pm to 5.30pm from Monday to Friday; and from 10am to 1pm and 5pm to 6.30pm on weekends. The Cathedral museum is open from Monday to Friday, from 10am to 1pm and 4pm to 7pm.
