From there we visited the Mecadaro
From the Mercado we went back to the Metropolitan Cathedral–Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady of Valencia. It was built over the site of the former Visigothic cathedral, which under the Moors had been turned into a mosque. One of the supposed Holy Chalices in the world is revered in one of this cathedral's chapels; this chalice has been defended as the true Holy Grail; indeed, most Christian historians all over the world declare that all their evidence points to this Valencian chalice as the most likely candidate for being the authentic cup used at the Last Supper
Back in Requena we were informed that the hosts who were away in Madrid had made arrangements for us to have dinner at their favorite restaurant. It was a short walk from the residence. We werent sure what to expect but it ended up being one of the best meals of the entire trip. The restaurant was called Mesón del Vino. Lovely interior, with bull's heads and bullfighting memorabilia. Excellent tapas.
