Holy Grail

Those practicing Christianity knows the concept of “Holy Grail,” and every single artwork, be it movies, paintings, books, and others have included the concept.  But many don’t know that the Holy Grail is located in the Valencia Cathedral of Spain and even the Vatican City, the religious capital of Christianity, has acknowledged it. The artifact stays well-protected in a bay on the wall and people offer their prayers here. Along with this, the Cathedral is famous for the preserved arm of St. Vincent of Saragossa. The place serves as a center of faith for many, and not everywhere you get to the see the “Holy Grail.”

Bull Fighting

Bull Fighting stays synonymous with Spain.  All over the world, animal activists have been criticizing the act demanding to ban it, but Spain has no intention of letting go its traditional act. Bull Fighting takes place in all over the country and has been the very part of it for hundreds of years. Though it takes place in many parts of the country, the one being organized in Madrid is the best one, and Seville has the most authentic one sticking to the traditions. 

Flamenco Show

Every country has some festivals that stay specific to its border, and out of many that take place in Spain, Flamenco Show is the one. The show is an old traditional form of folk music on which people dance in their own folk choreography. The show has not lost its value and continues to enjoy the same love and enthusiasm as it did when it was started in the 7th century as per the records.

Scariest Pathway

The one meter wide, the pathway is known as Caminito Del Rey and was inaugurated by Alfonso XIII. 3000 meters long and 101 meters tall, this one will surely send chills down to your spine while you cross it.

La Tomatina
