A real castle to visit whilst on a beach holiday. This heritage site is a great bonus visit whilst on a predominantly beach holiday. The kids loved scampering up the stairs and around the parapets.

Take your time walking up to the top of the castle, it's worth it for the view from the very top! There are lots of rooms and exhibitions to see within the castle.

Great castle in the centre of the old town. Views from the top are fantastic. A must when you visit Peniscola. You have the old town to visit on the way down with all the restaurants.

A most interesting visit to the castle and the gardens, preceded by a walk through the old town and followed by lunch overlooking the sea. Plenty to see and experience. Very clean. The birds of prey are a special addition to the experience
