“The real Holy Grail, is only the piece on the inside. This is sort of like a safe they’ve made to preserve it and to be able to display it.”

It’s been several years since workers here contacted a goldsmith in Valencia who crafts replicas of the chalice. Since then they’re shipped to this store and sold world wide.
