At the beach; Near water
Peñíscola is one of the most popular tourist resorts in the province of Castellón, surrounded by water on three sides, and with a fashionable beach.
The landmark of the place is the castle situated on a ridge with an incredible panoramic view of the sea. This spectacular castle lays out a piece of history in front of you, a history that points out the place as having been the place of seclusion for Pope Benedict XIII, when he launched the fight for the unity of the Catholic Church. And in bringing you back to present times, in spring and summer this walled enclosure hosts a Spanish comic film festival and a festival of old and Baroque music.
Outside the walls of the castle a beautiful setting of unique beaches lapped by the warm waters of the Mediterranean await for you, with beautiful coves like the Argilaga cove waiting to be explored, with numerous water sports opportunities. Also the visiting Peñíscola Marsh or hiking or mountain biking in the Serra d’Irta Nature Park will be enchanting for nature lovers. Tailor your next perfect holiday in Peñíscola to make it one to remember.
