Castell de Peniscola was a really great place to see some beautiful views and a very nice walk with many good restaurants and bars available and nice toilets available! Some sections had way to many tourist trinket shops! Take your time (at least 3 hours) as lots of steps. Castle fee for seniors only 2.50 Euros and well worth it... More

Compared to entrance fees in England this was very reasonably priced, otherwise like any ruined castle.

Historic castle, though when guide told us that the upper ramparts had been added for 'El Cid' movie, it kind of took the shine off a little. Steps take you up to higher levels looking out on the sea below. Windy paths lead you back down town through a plethora of really tacky souvenir shops!

Beautiful views, bustling with people, restaurants and shops. Not too expensive and its our Second visit. There was work going on this time so some places within the castle were unavailable. Toilet facilities were clean, but there are a lot of steps so not good for that dodgy knee!!

We visited the castle and certainly enjoyed the views from there. We enjoyed a quiet night walk! Beautiful sights. You can buy some typical nice gifts as well.

We do not like to pay to visit places on it. We like all over, because the buildings are in a good form and every think is clear and clean.

The walk up the hill to the castle which juts out into the sea by the beach at Peniscola, was quite steep. But taking our time and admiring the view made it easier. The entry fee was only 2.50 euros for seniors. There were a few markets along the way mainly in front of the houses in very narrow streets.... More
