We went on a Sunday and observed Mass. It was very interesting and I felt good that we had been allowed to stay because it gave us the opportunity to take quality time in the peace and quiet. Unusually there was no charge this day to get in, maybe because it was a Sunday, but there are plenty of opportunities... More

Well worth 6 euro just to experience the detail of the architecture of this place. Don't miss out for six euro

We climbed up the 207 stairs to get a nice view over Valencia. The view was really good so it was worth the 2 Euro fee to get there. We did not see the rest of the church.

The admission fee for seniors was just over four Euros each, but was well worth it, as it included a personal audio guide. The building is quite magnificent and we spent quite some time exploring it. From its Gothic structure, to the Renaissance and baroque altar area, there is much to see of interest. It is well worth looking at... More

We admired it for 2 days from outside and then went in. It reminded us of the big European cathedrals, although it definitely has its own strong personality. Its history is even more interesting than what you can see. If you want to believe it, you have the chance to watch the Holy Grail.

I've read arguments that say it is more a museum than a place of worship. I think it is both. Whatever you think it is there is a lot to see including hundreds of statues. Worth the stop.

This mixture of Romanesque, Gothic and Baroque is magnificent. It is also home to the Chapel of the Holy Grail....which considering its alleged importance is poorly displayed in a gloomy space at a considerable distance from decent view. Shame!

I feel that the building does not really know what it wants to be, church or museum. This is a church you have to pay to enter. That is unusual, even St. Peter in Rome does not charge. The interior is stark and somehow lifeless. As a cathedral it is forgetable. So is it a museum? Not really. It is... More
