Glastonbury

Glastonbury in England is a magical place marked by the legends of King Arthur and Joseph of Arimathea. Legend has it that King Arthur, when mortally wounded, was carried to Glastonbury where he threw his sword into the river. I attach a photo of the place where King Arthur and Guinevere's tombs were said to have been found in 1191.

Joseph of Arimathea, who is believed to have been the uncle of the Virgin Mary, travelled to England to spread Christianity. He is reported to have carried with him the Holy Chalice, which was used by Jesus at the Holy Supper and contained the blood and sweat of Jesus Christ. When Joseph of Arimathea rested on Wearyall Hill he is said to have placed his staff into the ground where it miraculously took root and began to sprout. Furthermore it blossomed at Christmas.

Glastonbury

The ruins of the Abbey are still quite extensive. Glastonbury is also synonymous with the biggest annual rock festival in Europe.
