Peniscola History
Due to its strategic position in the Mediterranean arch, this town has been a very important enclave since remote times. So much so that even during the Western Schism (XIV - XV century) Pope Luna converted it into one of the only 3 Papal Cities to have existed in the world. A Castle out in the sea is a magnificent cinema scenery. A multitude of Spanish and international films have been made in Peñiscola dating back to the 50s, among which to be mentioned is El Cid, starring Charlton Heston and directed by Anthony Mann.
