A route specialized in the holy relic
Turiart has the pleasure to invite you for a visit to the cultural memorial of the most important relic of Valencia: the Holy Grail.
To celebrate the 2016 jubilee year based in Valencia, THE PATHS OF THE GRAIL is a route that focuses on religious tourism that contains the history, tradition, legends and simbolics of one of the most important relics in christianity: the Holy Grail.
The tour starts at the Plaza del Patriarca and includes the entrance to “la Iglesia del Corpus Christi” (the Church of Corpus Christ) to introduce you to the importance of that catholic solemnity and as after the Council of Trento, this devotion is expressed architecturally in buildings and spaces devoted to worship of the Corpus Christ.
We will walk towards “la Iglesia de San Martín” (the Saint Martin Church), pass by San Juan de la Cruz to admire his communion Chapels and continued devotion and finally, we will go to the Valencian Catedral, to see the relic.
The objective is to show the visitor in a chronological way the history of the GRAIL, a history that starts at the day of the Last Supper, in the evangelic Jerusalem, and ends six centuries later in the medieval Valencia.
