holy grail

we landed in valencia, spain
and proceeded to the cathedral
first to see what is reported to be
the holy grail
we then
walked up the tower

207 stairs going up
207 stairs going down

difficult, uneven steps

before we journeyed upwards
i noticed
in the corner of the cathedral square
a shop
called valor
which is an amazing chocolatier
and i knew my prize
for the journey

a holy grail of culinary sorts

would be
a perfect cup of chocolate
small and pure
from a single source
and almost too much to take
so chocolaty, and amazing
i had to order a bit of cream to chase it with
such an american!

i wanted to share this with you
if per chance
you are in valencia
and are looking for 
the holy grail


  1. Christy be safe and watch your pockets! That Chocolate looks fabulously delicious I will have to remember that stop next time Im in spain.

  2. Sounds like you're having fun and I would so love a cup of that!
