Culture and History tour in Valencia

Tour Price : $135 Duration : 3 hours Languages: Spanish, English, Italian, French

Discover in this private tour two unique cultural sites in Valencia: San Nicolas church and the Holy Grail Chapel. Two very impressive places.

The church of San Nicolas has recently been restored, revealing a pictorial display that experts have called the 'Valencian Sixtine Chapel'. Erected as a parish church in 1242, it was remodeled in the XVth century in gothic style by the initiative of the Borja family. From ghothic it turned into baroque in the XVIIIth century. Its restoration has been classified as 'the most important architectural and pictorial-ornamental work ever carried out anywhere in the world due to the scale of the work and the techniques used'.

The Holy Grail is believed to had been left in the house where the Last Supper took place. Historians all over the world point all their evidence to this item as being the authentic Cup. It is a homogenous piece cut out entirely from a large chunk of agate. Naturally, decorations of gold and pearls were added to the supporting structure over the centuries. It is located inside the Cathedral, full of interesting pieces of art. If you want to know more about the history of this important relic, join me on this tour full of history and special moments.

This tour includes the entrance fee to both churches.
