Excellent example of mediaeval architecture
8km of coastline destroyed by modern blocks and hotels!
In a nutshell
One of my favourite places.
Peñíscola is a historic town that combines an incredibly beatigul maze of cobble streets with a spectacular location on a rock near the coast and large sandy beaches. No wonder that it attracts so many visitors every year. In fact the number of souvenir shops in some streets and the tourists in tasteless Hawaiian shirts and bermudas make it seem maybe too touristy, so much that this whole area may look like a real tourist trap during peak season. Nevertheless, a visit to Peñíscola is always interesting. Anyway, try to come on a weekday off the season for a more rewarding visit.
