Home / Peñíscola


(Peníscola in valenciano) is a town located in the province and autonomous community of Valencia, Spain. It is located in a privileged point of the Spanish Mediterranean. The 79 km2 of extension of its municipality, 17 of which run parallel to the coast, are divided between the forest areas and the warm Mediterranean crops, among which there is no shortage of orange, olive and almond trees.

Peñíscola, a hospitable city, has been a crossroads of all the Mediterranean civilizations that since the dawn of history have been navigating this sea of bonanza and culture. Phoenicians and Greeks were followed by Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines and Arabs… all knew of its advantageous situation, of its security as an irreducible fortress and of its suitability as a habitat, both for its climate and for having abundant fresh water that flows from the bowels of the rock in the citadel itself. It has held the title of City since 1707.
