Chalice Well England

A place wrapped up in mysteries an legends, Chalice Well in south west England is a peaceful stop on a tour of the area.

The Chalice Well is one of many sacred wells located throughout the country.  It is of particular note because legends say that Joseph of Arimithea either washed or buried the cup that was used at the Last Supper (the fabled “Holy Grail”) here.

There are other spots of historical note nearby, so it is easy to make a whole day of sightseeing in the area.  Visit Glastonbury Abbey to see the ruins of a beautiful abbey as well as the spot where it is believed by some that King Arthur and Queen Guinevere are buried.

Don’t forget a visit to Glastobury Tor, an impressive tower with beautiful views of the countryside.  Legends say that the Tor is the fabled entrance to the Isle of Avalon (the land of the Fairies).
