Netflix Showcases ‘The Way of the Holy Grail’ Worldwide, with a Spotlight on Valencia

Embark on a mesmerizing journey as Netflix brings the enigmatic pilgrimage route, ‘The Way of the Holy Grail,’ to screens globally, with a special focus on Valencia. 

Netflix unveils a captivating pilgrimage saga, “The Way of the Holy Grail,” a groundbreaking documentary series led by Dr. Ana Mafé García, unraveling the scientific exploration of the Holy Grail’s journey across Spain, from Huesca to Valencia. 

As of early November, audiences worldwide are transported on this odyssey, delving into the mysteries of faith through a meticulously crafted narrative.

The chosen pilgrims, Cristina Monzón from Valencia and Alejandro Martínez Notte from Argentina, both avid travelers and content creators, embark on this extraordinary pilgrimage, documenting their experience on social media platforms. Netflix, recognizing the transformative potential of this journey, showcases the pilgrims’ exploration of nearly a hundred municipalities in Huesca, Zaragoza, Teruel, Castellón, and Valencia—a route laden with historical, cultural, and Holy Grail-related significance.

Alejandro emphasizes the challenges of the Holy Grail route, advocating for proper signage in some unmarked stretches. Despite the hurdles, the duo emphasizes the pilgrimage’s worth, advocating for a “Slow and Green” tourism ethos that values a conscious and environmentally friendly approach to travel.

Netflix not only captures the adventurers’ personal stories but also delves into the archaeological and historical underpinnings of the Holy Chalice of Valencia. Dr. Ana Mafé García, a contributor to the documentary, aligns scientific evidence with Christian tradition, confirming the Chalice’s authenticity as a “kosh kiddush” dating back to the times of Christ.

The series weaves together archaeological revelations with the continuous Christian oral tradition, tracing the Holy Chalice’s journey from Jerusalem to Rome and eventually to Huesca, saved from Roman looting by Saint Lorenzo. This rich historical tapestry links Valencia to an uninterrupted oral tradition, earning it the status of the third most important jubilee city in Christianity, following Jerusalem and Rome.

In 2014, the Holy See declared Valencia a jubilee city in perpetuity, commemorating the Easter memory of Jesus. The Path of the Holy Grail Cultural Association, led by Dr. Ana Mafé García, anticipates the upcoming jubilee in 2025, poised to celebrate this spiritual milestone.

Comparing their experiences to the Camino de Santiago, Cristina and Alejandro highlight the unique focus of the Holy Grail route, zigzagging across significant landmarks connected to the relic. Dr. Mafé’s book, “The Holy Grail,” serves as their guide, offering insights into archaeological evidence, the relic’s journey, and its literary connections.

The Holy Grail route emerges as more than a pilgrimage; it becomes a conduit for universal love, interreligious dialogue, and harmony between people, echoing the Rule of Love. In these times of conflict, the pilgrims greet each other with a profound message: “Peace and Love with you,” emphasizing the enduring relevance of the journey. 

The Path of the Holy Grail, recognized by the Cultural Association, aspires to become a European Cultural Itinerary, uniting seekers on the Route of Knowledge and the Path of Peace.
