Made famous by the 1960 movie “El Cid,” the beautifully preserved medieval Castillo Templario Ponteficio offers commanding views over the old town of Pensicola and the Mediterranean. Streets snake through the old fortress, and houses are built within its walls, some now converted into cafes and souvenir shops. Learn about the castle’s history through interpretive panels, see where Pope Benedict XIII (Papa Luna) lived and the chapel he prayed in, and keep an eye out for the house with a facade made entirely of seashells.
