The Holy Chalice (Cup of Last Supper) of the Valencia Cathedral - Spain Holidays

World Holidays
The Holy Chalice (or cup of the Last Supper) is the vessel which in Christian tradition Jesus used at the Last Supper to serve the wine. The celebration of the Eucharist in Christian churches and communities retains the original elements of the Last Supper, the bread and the cup as recorded in the Gospels.
According to historical tales, Saint Peter brought it to Rome, and passed it on to his successors (the Popes). When Christians were being persecuted by Emperor Valerian in 258, the Romans demanded that relics be turned over to the government. Pope Sixtus II instead gave the cup to one of his deacons, Saint Lawrence, who passed it to a Spanish soldier, Proselius, with instructions to take it to safety in Lawrence's home country of Spain.
Strongly recommended to visit.
