Plaza de la Virgin is one of Valencia’s main landmarks and the city’s religious heart. It is also where you’ll find the Cathedral of Valencia. 

The impressive building, built in the 13th century on the site of a former mosque, mixes a variety of architectural styles –Gothic, Baroque and Neo-Classical – and its three portals reflect each style. 

The cathedral also houses what is believed to the Holy Grail, the cup used by Christ during the last supper. 
However, it wasn’t just the amazing architecture or the presence of the Holy Grail that captured my attention on my recent visit to the Cathedral of Valencia, but some of the people I saw in and around the Plaza de la Virgin…

such as the beautiful bride,

the little girl on her way to her 1st communion,

and the people lined up to buy lottery tickets. Does purchasing them in front of the cathedral increases their chances of winning?
