Concierge.com's insider take:
Construction of Valencia's cathedral began in 1262, but the building remained unfinished until the main portal was erected during the Baroque era. Echoes of the mosque that originally stood on this site can be seen today in the cathedral's octagonal Gothic micalet, or bell tower, where a 155-foot climb leads to a fantastic city panorama. The devout and the doubting-yet-curious tend to flock here for one primary reason: a side chapel containing an ancient agate cup that for over 500 years has been heralded as the bona fide Holy Grail.
