    Big fishes, Water Hens and Seagulls.

    Usually nobody looks at the castle moat filled with the sea water. If you have a look there then you will see the hordes of incredibly big fishes. According to local legislation any fishing is strictly prohibited in these moats. That fish must live and die in natural was. Tourists are allowed to feed them with bread. Other inhabitants of these moats are the water hens (Gallinula chloropus). These nanatorials are swiming well and living on the water but they don’t have any membrane between the finges of their feet. Water hen even don’t try to hunt for the fish because it is unpredictable who will eat whom. And at last you will see seagulls there. They don’t chase any fish but just stealing the bread tourists throw to the moats.

    Serra d'Irta

    Beach of Pe����scola

    As you can see in this picture, tourtist developments have seriously damaged the Mediterranean coast in Spain. The Serra d'Irta, southwards of Peniscola, is one of the last stretches of coast that have remained virgin and undevelopped in the region of Valencia. It has recently been declared a Natural park, so its preservation for future generations is guaranteed.

    The Serra d'Irta offers a lot of hiking opportunities as well in the hills as along the rocky coast, with a lot of small secluded beaches, from some of which you can admire the Medieval profile of Peníscola in the distance.

    This little fish you could see all the time, when you went into the water. This water was very cold cause it comes from a mountain. If you held you feet still for a moment the fish started to nibble on you legs and that tickles a lot!
