Peñíscola, the city in the sea

What to do in Peñíscola?

The city of Peñíscola, in the North of the Valencian Community, is located in a privileged point of the Spanish Mediterranean. The 79 km2 of extension of the municipality, 17 of which run parallel to the coast, are divided equally between forest areas and warm Mediterranean crops, including orange, olive and almond trees.

The old city, crowned by what was the residence of Pope Benedict XIII, a castle-fortress from the s. XIV, occupies an imposing rock that rises 64 m above the blue of the sea; It is linked to the mainland by a strip of sand that long ago was swept away by the waves during storms, transforming the city into an ephemeral island.

In contrast to the old town, there are the new streets and avenues of the tourist area. Warm waters in summer and autumn, are divided between the extensive fine sand beaches to the north of the citadel and beautiful coves flanked by steep cliffs to the south.
