Small, yes, but this doesn’t mean that you won’t like this city. Actually it’s really easy to like it, because what you can find there during your stay will be more than enough to make you feel good. Just to take a walk around the city centre, to drink something inside of small bars, or to choose between relaxing at the mountains or at the beach are also some of the activities that you can do in this small but entertaining city.


The city is surrounded by water on every side but one and has a beach that's a byword for fashion all year round. Peñíscola is one of the most popular tourist resorts in the province of Castellón. The castle, perched on a large ridge overlooking the sea, offers a glimpse of its past at a time when knights and battlemented fortresses occupied the lands of 'El Maestrazgo'. Pope Benedict XIII, known as 'Papa Luna', chose this as a place of seclusion and to launch the fight for the unity of the Catholic Church. The fortress stands on the highest point of the peninsula. The parade ground offers as a delightful balcony over the Mediterranean, and its keep makes the perfect place to see a panoramic view of the coastline. We are sure you will be amazed by its castle, perched on a large ridge overlooking the sea. It is so amazing that it will be one of the filming locations of Game of Thrones. In the last season of the TV series, 'Meereen' was filmed in


Discover Valencia and end up loving it. There are few cities like Valencia, able to harmoniously combine the remnants of its farthest past, dating to the year 138 BC, with the most innovative and avant-garde buildings from the new millennium. Valencia is trade and culture, cinema, theatre, museums, magic, business. Thanks to its location, Valencia has historically been Spain’s Mediterranean port and has that special charm of cities that are also seaports. And the fine sand and clean water, the vastness of the sea and the closeness of the coastal mountains make the Valencian coast uniquely attractive.


Buñol is just 39 kilometres from the city of Valencia, in a mountainous area close to the coast. In the surrounding region you will have the chance to enjoy beautiful nature areas such as Alta Cave, the Juanes River and Turche Cave, where there is a 60 metre waterfall at rainy times of year. The town also has many parks and gardens. Other points of interest are its 13th century castle, the old town around it and El Salvador Church, which also houses the town’s Archaeological Museum. Nevertheless, it is in August when thousands of people head for Buñol to take part in its famous “Tomatina”. This amusing fiesta involves everyone hurling tomatoes at each other and has the International Tourist Interest designation.
