Villages in Peñíscola
Peñíscola
(102)
The city of Papa Luna is my favorite along the Azahar coast. I love the fortress elevtated on the rocks like a lookout along the coast. Peñíscola has something about it that just draws you in. I think it’s the strong simple, passive, marine feeling surrounding the town. Six hundred years of historical mystery, legends, ghost stories, miracles, and diabolic presences fill the Muslim castle that Pedro de Luna (also known as Benedict XIII) resided in during the 15th century. Called “Papa del Mar” (Pope of the Sea), he was an enigmatic and controversial person. It’s said that the his fascination with studying the templar knights, which made Peñíscola known as an enclave of grate spiritual and esoteric power, where thanks to the cross of energy they used to obtain altered states of mind, extra sensorial perceptions and phenomenal paranormals. Walking around, not only in the castle but down the winding streets around the old lighthouse, one gets lost in the swarm of white houses bordering the sea. The scent of silk swirls around and invades the old Peñíscola. Below, where the land's flat and tame, the town extends to the beach. While walking among the memories and legends of Papa Luna, be sure to stop at a restaurant for a lobster and seafood stew. It’s irresistible! Peñíscola is truly worth the trip.

Peñíscola Castle
(96)
This castle is tied to the history of one of the most interesting persons in Spain's history: el Papa Luna (Pope Benedicto XIII), who was responsible for the construction of his papal headquarters. The castle, built by templar knights, is very well conserved and maintains its charm. From the top of the walls you can enjoy a spectacular view of the Peniscola Bay, which is a must-see for anyone that passes by this area.
Villages in Morella
Morella
(37)
The city of Morella is one of the most beautiful cities in Spain. It is still fortified and it possesses all the charm of medieval times. By walking in its streets it transports you to another place in earth that doesn’t belong to today, since it respects the old and maintains the new.
Waterfalls in Navajas
El Salto de la Novia
(61)
It's a 60 meter waterfall with a legend attached to it. It supposedly was the tragic end to a misunderstood couple. Those from around here say you can hear the dead lovers at night. Most that come here strive to hike to the base of the waterfall, but many turn back due to the slippery terrain. The water falls directly on the rocks, which can be dangerous. Seeing the falls after it's rained, however, is purely marvelous and spectacular. The river has eroded the terrain in such a manner that it's unique place, with a reddish rocky wall. There's a great extension of grass that invites you to sit down, relax and admire the marvels around you. On each Saturday in July and August, they have the International Cycle of Concerts at 11 PM, with chamber orchestras, metal quintets, jazz, music bands, choir festivals, ect. The area couldn't be any prettier.
Beaches in Peñíscola
Peñíscola Beach
(42)
I must admit, visiting Peñíscola was a very pleasant surprise. I'm not much for classic beach town and I had my reserves, but Peñíscola truly doesn't have anything in common with the typical beach town. Yes, it's true, there's a beach, sand, sun and a vacation atmosphere, but there's also much more. To begin with, the beach is stylish. What you'll find is an old, medieval town that engulfs you. Walking along its white streets full of steep inclines and surrounded by its history walls. It's just like going through a gate and finding a town on the top of a hill. A very impressive sight. It's a place that reminds me of my cherished Altea.
Castles in Morella
Morella Castle
(27)
If I had to choose the most impressive thing about this city, it would be the silhouette the of the castleas you’re driving up to the city. It seems like a three-layer cake, with the castle standing on top. Tours of the castle begin atthe San Francisco covenant, where they provide you with great information about the place. It was declared a historic-artistic monument, the castle rises above the city. It was built in the 18th century by a very recognizable Islamic defensive architect. On the tour, you’ll pass through all three levels, following the signs which give you plenty of information. They don’t just give you the name and the year, but put everything in its historical context. Once you arrive at the highest point (it seems like the stairway is never ending), the castle provides you with incredible views of Morella and the Els Ports region. I always recommend to take you time here and soak up everything you can. Observe, read, take pictures, learn. The Morella caste is like an open book of history and art, just waiting for you to read it. It’s great to visit with children and adolescents, as well. My nieces freeze up when they enter the prison chamber and read about the living conditions of the prisoners. Great memories on a great summer afternoon.
Streets in Peñíscola
Lighthouse of Peñíscola
(24)
It’s one my favorite places and areas of Peñíscola. I don’t know, it has a special charm. The views from the bottom of the lighthouse are incredible. The contract between the lighthouse and the sea is amazing. At night, the retating like has a special charm to it. It’s completely integrated in the old quarters, located at its highest point, just next to the Papa Luna caste. It was inaugurated in 1899.
Of Touristic Interest in Benicàssìm
Benicassim-Oropesa Green Route
(21)
If you go to Benicassim or Oropesa, don’t miss this green route between both towns. It is a beautiful route. You can walk or bicycle it. By sunset, it is amazing because you can observe the sun setting and the different tones of the sky. Taking advantage of the abandoned tunnel of the old railway, you can walk near the virgin cliffs, reach almost deserted beaches and pass next to the watchtower, Torre de la Cordá.
Islands in Castellon de la Plana
Columbretes Islands
(17)
"The columbretes islands" are a small insular place that rise out of the water on the Peniscola coast. Seven islands of volcanic origin emerge from the trembling, intensely blue Mediterranean. Thanks to the transparency of the water, the little islands are a great treasure. You can see the animals that live there with no fear of man. If you visit the islands, submerge yourself in the water to play with the giant grouper. Stop at the edge of the cliff, against the wind, to see the birds fly through the wind currents about the shimmering silver of the beach.
Historical Monuments in Castellon de la Plana
El Fadrí
(20)
The Fadrí is one of the place you must see in Castellón. It’s a bell tower and the symbol of Castelló.
Cities in Montanejos
Montanejos
(30)
Montanejos is a small town surrounded by mountains, giving it a completely unique location, as its thermal waters have made it become a spa town. It's located in the Western region of the Alto Mijares. Hotels are spread throughout the city and there's a huge spa that a multitude of people frequent through the year (most of them senior citizens). A few meters from the center there are various places to go for a dip in the river. There's a nice, lit path headed there from the center of town. The Fuente de los Banos is one of the most famous springs. The quality of the water emanated from the inside of the mountain is indicated at various points.
Beaches in Xilxes
Chilches Beach
(20)
It is a very calm beach, great for families. I recommend the beach and the town of Xilxes. It is the second year I come and every time I like it more and more: you have everything you need for a relaxing vacation.
Viewpoints in Peñíscola
Atalayas de Peniscola
(12)
A residential ubanization has given name to one of the best lookout points along the Azahar coast in Peñíscola. From the point you can see all of Peñíscola, its beaches, its hotels, and its magnificent castle. Benicarlo can also be seen, and if it’s during a clear day, you can even see Vinaroz.
Nature Reserves in Alcoceber
Natural Park of Serra d'Irta
(11)
The Sierra de Irta (which contains the natural park of the same name) is a pure nature destination with mind-boggling landscapes, especially along the coast (which is also known for being the only branch of the Mediterranean coast that hasn’t been exploited by buildings). The steep and random rock forms contrast with the calm and solitary coves that we found along our walk. A true delight to discover.
Museums in Segorbe
Oil Museum
(5)
The Olive Oil Museum is located in the downtown of Segorbe, in an ancient mill for making olive oil that has been rehabilitated and it preserves many of its original elements that were used in the production of oil. In the ground floor there is an explicative audiovisual about the cultivation and harvesting of the oil, the different types of olives in the region and the elaboration of the oil. In the upper floor we find an oil waterfall, diverse explicative audiovisuals and a hall where we learn the history of Segorbe through La Morruda, a hundred year old olive tree. The museum has a store with ecological products. Opening hours: Monday to Saturday, 11:00-13:30 and 16:00-18:30. Sundays and holidays 11:00-14:00.
Caves in La Vall d'Uixó
Grottos of San José
(19)
The San José caves are located inside the Espadán Natural Park, where the largest subterranean river in Europe runs, the San José river. The tourist boat visit travels some 535 meters, including visits to subterranean chambers plus a dry chamber 225 meters long, that you do on foot. In total, the tour lasts 40 minutes, although there’s a 2 km-long area inaccessible to the public. Although the entrance to the grotto is pretty deteriorated, it’s possible to imagine cave paintings there, as found in similar caves from 15,000 years ago. It’s definitely a recommended visit for anyone who loves caves. The tour is impressive, especially the last part, when you see a grotto called “La Catedral” (the cathedral), who’s vault is more than 10 meters high. I don’t think the tour would be a good idea for those with vision problems, as there’s scarce amounts of light, nor for those with claustrophobia. You buy the ticket at the booths in front of the caves. Each ticket indicates when your guided tour starts. Some recommendations: -The visit is comfortable and apt for all types of people, but I’d recommend wearing comfortable, protective shoes -Don’t visit the cave on rainy days, as there as places you won’t be able to see. They still haven’t found where the river starts, or where the grotto ends.
Gardens in Orpesa
Marina D'Or Gardens
(22)
The gardens of Marina d’Or are located in front of the sea. From the beach you have direct access. Inside you will see exotic vegetation from the five continents. It has more than 100,000 square meters of green areas and gardens that form a sort of labyrinth. There are also fountains, an artificial ria with huge fish, swans and ducks, fountains and sculptures, as well as a children’s area.
Harbors in Peñíscola
Port of Peniscola
(6)
Peniscola port, is located in one of the most attractive sites of the Costa Azahar and the Sierra de Irta, located on the south side of the peninsula that forms the beautiful old town of the city. At the port you can the perfect shelter that is Peniscola at the foot of the castle that sheltered the Papa Luna.
