The intense blue of the Mediterranean laps at the enormous rock – previously a small island – on which the fortified city of Peñiscola proudly stands. A fairytale city, an almost magical place straight out of the movies, it is crowned by a Templar castle from which Pope Luna, Benedict XIII, drove the Western Schism and determined the fate of Christianity for many years. With its spectacular fortress, its steep narrow streets nestled within the city walls, its magnificent wetlands, golden beaches and the rugged Serra d’Irta mountains, Peñíscola offers visitors a wide range of surprising and beautiful urban and natural environments to explore.
I would not want to stay here as there are high rise buildings but for a day out it is perfect? We enjoy exploring the castle which is full of lovely little shops and restaurants with the most spectacular views, over looking the stunning turqouise waters. The beach is also lovely and where the film 'Ed Cid' was taken.
