This text is designed to bring you closer to Peñiscola. The town, situated towrds the north of the Comunidad Valenciana, is close enough to come without even thinking about it, and once here, far away enough to believe that nothing else matters.
History has proudly told us that this imposing castle in its youth laid stage to the forces of nature, sieges and the holy seat of a Pope. The castle initially served as a bastion of protection for all living within its walls.
. Today, it looks upon the expansive meditteranean sea, surrounded by fine sand and a constant breeze, its new purpose being to unveil the secrets within.
