Cathedral of the city of Valencia, its construction began on a mosque (which in turn was built on the old Visigothic basilica) after the conquest of the city by King James I the Conqueror in the year 1238. Started in Romanesque style and Gothic, it also has important Baroque and Neoclassical elements. The old Chapter House has housed the relic of the Holy Grail since the 14th century, the Grail that, according to tradition, Christ used at the Last Supper.

The Gothic-style Puerta de los Apóstoles has brought together the Tribunal de las Aguas since the Middle Ages, a court whose rulings on the administration of water in the orchards of Valencia are still binding today. The bell tower, also called Micalet, is in the Gothic style and its 203-step staircase is famous.
