Day 1,029: Mediterranean Cruise: Valencia, Spain.

When Laetitia led a tour group in Valencia, Spain, that included the cathedral, the Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady of Valencia, she was surprised to find on display a chalice identified as the Holy Grail. Contradictory legends abound concerning the Grail that range from those of Arthurian legend to that of Dan Brown’s and these spawned a limerick.

When King Arthur’s knights searched for the Grail
In old England in many a tale
Valencians claim
‘Twas in Rome, then in Spain
So those searches were destined to fail.
