  • It's amazing, a back in time. The Castle impresses, the Seaview is amazing, and the entire city that exists in back is super cool.

  • Place with a special charm, without a doubt tell Peñiscola Castle is city of Peñiscola. Spectacular setting for a pleasant stroll and a drink at his feet.

  • A beautiful and very well-preserved Castle. I liked the trip and we recommend it. A pity that there were hundreds of people because it coincided with a guided tour and instead of just the group, as they closed the passage which we did not want to go with a visit. The views are extraordinary.

  • Excellent fully preserved example of a Templar Knight 12th century castle. Not too crowded when we visited but get there early. Also be aware that it closes in the early afternoon and reopens late afternoon. Definitely worth spending a few hours here.
  • Small castle of the knight templar. The entrance (castle and garden) is about 5€. Nice view from above the castle. Inside they try to explain what they know. But it seems that they know few things about it. So mostly you visit stones without history. Simon Visit my website: www.noireblanc.de
  • I thought this place was awesome! It was also used as a set for Game of Thrones, so it was really fun for me to see! Very beautiful scenery - perfect for lots of pictures!
  • Nice castle by the Knights Templar built in 13th century. Great views, empty rooms.
  • Nice and cosy castle, without narrow authentic streets full of charm. Many bars and cafes for any taste.
