A beautiful place to visit. Lovely to wander up through the whitewashed streets, looking at the shops, and then up to the castle itself. Very impressive, plenty of signage in English if you want to learn about the history of the place. Fabulous views from the top - particularly wonderful at sunset
A beautiful castle in a stunning location. The approach to the castle is amazing with traditional restaurants and gift shops set amongst the beautiful buildings that surround the castle. The views from the top of are amazing, and inside the castle there are many exhibitions with information about the past of the historic building. This is a must see for anyone visiting Peñíscola, and the admission is very reasonable whether visiting by yourself or with family.
