But does the Holy Grail really exist?
And if the Holy Grail does exist, where is it?
While other legends claim Lorenzo sent the Holy Grail to his parents in northern Aragon, Barbagallo insists the Grail never left Rome and it remained on the site of the saint’s tomb upon which Emperor Costantine built a shrine in 4th century, and a century later the main portion of the Basilica of San Lorenzo Fuori le Mura was built on the exact spot.
However, until the catacombs are authorized by Rome to be opened and examined, we will never know if Bargallo’s Holy Grail theory is correct.
