It has something special about it

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.

The most beautiful area on castellón’s coast

It’s a city full of history: the “Banaskula” Arabs. Here, the typical tourist environment is lost as you’ll enjoy the experience of getting lost in the narrow and steep streets the Templar Knights, Papa Luna and Felipe II once roamed.

Many commercial films have been recorded here, including “Calabuch” or “El Cid,” as well as events like The International Comedy Film Festival. In my opinion, it’s the most beautiful area on Castellón’s coast. There’s always life. You’ll see people swimming at sunrise, the racket slowly increases throughout the day, the city walls are always surrounded by curious faces with cameras constantly flashing, the street market doesn’t close until the wee hours of the morning, and the boardwalk has many artists and restaurants – it’s full of people!
