Overview

Inside Valencia's cathedral, you will find the oldest museum in the city, founded in 1761. The museum's collection consists primarily of religious wooden images, paintings, and other sacred objects and silver work. Among these pieces is a notable collection of works from the 14th century, pieces by Jacomart, the two Hernandos, Juan de Juanes, and the most well-known, two paintings by Goya, The Farewell to Saint Francis of Borja, and the Condemned. The cathedral also holds other valuable items, such as documents by Calixto III and Alejandro VI, both Popes from Valencia, and one of the most sacred items in all of Christianity, donated by King Alfonso the Magnanimous: The Holy Grail (or chalice) used by Christ (however, the question of whether this is the true Holy Grail is hotly debated).Admission: 3EUR
