Noble Friends,

Today BBC travel is offering a thought-provoking illustrated story about
the Santa Cáliz (Holy Chalice) of Valencia, one of over 200 possible
candidates in Europe thought to be the Holy Grail. The Santa Cáliz has been
held in the Cathedral of Valencia since the 15th century and is on view in
a special chapel:

For more about the Santa Caliz and other grail candidates see:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_Chalice . A story on the Holy Grail as a
medieval legend is found at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_Grail .

The BBC story mentions that during the conquest of Spain by the Moors in
the 8th century, the chalice was hidden at the monastery of San Juan de
la Peña. This fascinating monastery was partially carved from the living
stones of an overhanging cliff:
