About Peniscola - presentation, information, photos and recommendations

Peniscola is a municipality in the Valencian Community, Spain, located on the north coast of the province of Castellón, in the region of Bajo Maestrazgo.

The city is situated on a rocky peninsula, initially united to the mainland only by a sandy isthmus, which sometimes floods.

Currently, due to the port and construction of buildings on the isthmus, this curiously disappeared.

In the rocky rises an old area of town, of which the castle stands Papa Luna, Peniscola divided into two completely different halves.

Mount dintotalul occupies the southern two-thirds of 81 km ². The northern part is a little low meadow, which lies in the village Benicarló which stretches from sea to mountain peaks Poaig.

Small fishing village of Peniscola in recent years become a tourist destination increasingly popular, although it is far more demanding standards desired by visitors, keeping their traditions today, architecture and the tranquility of a place that never changes.

But even that is far from the bustle of big cities in Spain, with the charm of custom, taste traditional dishes, old buildings and beautiful landscapes have made a rather surprising Peniscola appreciated.

The two sides of the peninsula beaches are covered, but not very high quality, which began to be crowded with tourists in recent years.

Especially in the summer Peniscola is a town full of strangers, who came to the beach and sea here, but for bars, traditional restaurants, a few modest hotels, always full of guests.

Those interested in the history of the place prefers to first visit the medieval castle, today almost ruined, the streets full of shops and old buildings, fortifications.
