Song of Museros at the passage of the Holy Grail

Dr. Ana Mafé, president of the Cultural Association The Way of the Holy Grail, interviews in one of her videos her own mother: Vicenta García Alcover, who interprets the song composed by the priest Adrián Ramírez on the occasion of the 17th centenary of the arrival of the Chalice in Spain. This unpublished interpretation, which is not included in any publication, is a testimony to the intangible cultural heritage related to the history of the Holy Grail.

The song was performed by Vicenta and children of her age in the Valencian town of Museros, when in 1959 the Holy Chalice passed along the old road accompanied by an entourage, recalling the route it travelled (in reverse) in the 16th century from Valencia through Zaragoza to San Juan de la Peña.

Why the Way of the Holy Grail?


The Holy Chalice is the most important relic that we Christians keep. It is the cup of blessing with which Jesus celebrated his last Hebrew Passover before dying on the cross. It is the same sacred vessel that, in the imagination of medieval literature, represented an adventure full of heroism and knowledge in search of the Holy Grail.

Myth, legend and adventure are intertwined in this Route of Knowledge, the road to Peace.

According to tradition, the sacred relic left the Holy City of Jerusalem with a retinue of people very close to Jesus, heading for the Capital of the Empire, Rome. There it remained hidden among the primitive community of early Christians because they were being persecuted with blood and fire by the Romans.

Bearing in mind the great historical and cultural value of the Holy Grail, its current location in the city of Valencia, as well as its long pilgrimage through the medieval imaginary, to travel the geography that followed this extraordinary relic in the Iberian Peninsula means discovering an incredible historical and cultural heritage hitherto unpublished.

This initiative for the structuring of the territory began many years ago. As early as 1959, we have evidence of the route through the celebration of the 17th centenary of the arrival of the sacred relic in Spain. Routes of the Holy Grail was the name given to the route by the Cathedral of Valencia.

The route that was promoted by the central government on the basis of tourism was the Jacobean Route. To date, it is the main pilgrimage route.

In 2002, thanks to the impetus of the Institut d’Estudis Valencians, the Gestora Turística del Real Panteón Monasterio de San Juan de la Peña, the Real Hermandad del Santo Cáliz, the Hermandad de Caballeros de San Juan de la Peña and the Cofradía del Santo Cáliz de Valencia, a national civil association was created. This union of synergies favours the historical route that is supported by the Cultural Association The Way of the Holy Grail. This non-profit association is responsible for disseminating and ensuring the consolidation of this marvellous route based on harmony, concord and peace between peoples.

The Way of the Holy Grail, Route of Knowledge, Route of Peace follows the itinerary that, according to tradition, the Holy Chalice followed from its arrival to the Iberian Peninsula in Osca to its current location in the Cathedral of Valencia. A route of some 520Km that runs between the northern Aragonese Pyrenees, the Royal Pantheon Monastery of San Juan de la Peña in Huesca and the Cathedral of Valencia, passing through more than a hundred Aragonese towns until it reaches the Mediterranean Sea, crossing the Valencian Community.

Since its presentation at FITUR 2015, Turismo Aragón has called this route the Route of the Holy Grail, while Turisme Comunitat Valenciana, since joining FITUR 2017, has named it the Route of the Grail.

Civil society refers to it as the Way of the Holy Grail, the Route of Knowledge, the Way of Peace.

Its route runs along nature trails, livestock trails, royal roads, greenways, small routes (PR) and even coincides with the Camino de Santiago de Huesca, the Jorgeada, the Camino del Cid and the Camino de San Vicente Mártir, which makes this route suitable for all types of pilgrims.
