Peniscola Castle reviews
The castle is amazing, with a rich history and breath-taking views. Our kids, 9 and 11, were very entertained by interactive projections and loved rumming around. We had a wonderful time visiting...

The castle is built on rock jutting out into the sea with beaches either side and the port. Fantastic views from the top of the castle, but many steps to reach it. Many shops, bars and restaurants on the small streets surrounding the castle. Also there is the castle garden which is accessible on the same ticket as the castle. Price reduction for children and pensioners. Wear sensible footwear, the streets are cobbled with stones and can be slippery. Enjoy.
Great experience, very well kept castle and really has a Templar feel to it still, you can almost imagine them walking those halls. Great views of Peñiscola and the sea. Lovely staff, free roaming inside. Clean facilities. Definitely worth a visit, whether or not you're interested in historical architecture.
