Trip Planner: Europe / Spain / Valencian Country / Province of Castellon / Peniscola / Peniscola Castle
Immerse yourself in the history of Peniscola Castle, a 14th-century castle built on the remains of a Moorish citadel. Study information displays and artifacts to learn about the castle’s past, such as its period as the residence of the Avignon pope in the 15th century. Located at the highest point in the city, the castle offers stunning views of Peñiscola and the coast. However, this does mean that there is steep walk up. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and bring water with you. Plan a Peniscola trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

Absolutely awesome!! If you are from the US and into Game of Thrones, visit all the filming locations!! This town is magical, and the castle is top notch!! Built in 1307 by the Knights Templar and so so much history! Loved every minute of being there.
Nice old walled town. Lovely bar/cafe in the sun overlooking the sea. Most restaurants closed on Saturday in February but a few were open in the old town. No bars, shops open along the promenade. Beautiful clean beach with nice sand. Long clean tree lined promenade suitable walking/cycling.
