Benicassim (Foto por FIB)


(Photos and text from Turismo de Castellón) Castellon is located on the Spanish Meditarranean coast, the most northerly of the provinces of the Community of Valencia. Castellon, and its Costa del Azahar, is a land of great contrasts.

Costa del Azahar

Going from north to south, Vinaròs is the first city to salute the visitors to the "Costa Azahar"; Vinaros has a modern bullring, a commercial and fishing port, large and clean beaches with all necessary services and a rich gastronomy in which the king prawn is the most valued and traditional species.

Benicarló, Marina (Castellón)


Benicarló is a city of Arab origin, with pre-Iberian centres nearby. It has a mediaeval urban centre with noteworthy homes where you can see noble coats of arms on the facades. Going along a long avenue, it is united with the sea where the stand-out elements are the fishing port and the large beach which leads to the unique Peñíscola.

Peñíscola is not just unique because of its location on a rocky promontory surrounded by the sea and linked to the land by a sandy isthmus, but also its exceptional monuments, the historical events which created its scenery and the beauty of its beaches and the enormous cliffs of Sierra de Irta, a nature area of great beauty.

Castle and beach of Peñíscola, Castellón (Spain)


The majestic Castle of Peñíscola was constructed by Templars in the 13th century. It is nowadays, the most visited tourist city in all of the Community of Valencia.

Alcossebre beach, Castellón (Spain)


A little further south we find Alcossebre, an eminently tourist urban centre of Arab origin where fishermen populated the area. It is part of Alcalà de Xivert and has a modern leisure harbour, beaches and magnificent developments of chalets and apartments.

In Torreblanca there is the maritime village of Torrenostra, with an excellent beach, campsites and restaurants surrounded by an old fishing village which can now be found in constant development as a tourist and summer centre.

Between this village and that of Oropesa del Mar, which occupies parrt of the municipal district of Cabanes, there is the Nature Park of the Prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca, an important humid zone where valuable vegetation and animal species are conserved.

Oropesa de Mar, Castellón


In Oropesa del Mar the beaches of La Concha and de Morro de Gos are located, both of mild sand. Next to them is a modern leisure harbour which opens up excellent perspectives for tourism in this area. Also is Oropesa del Mar with rough and beautiful coves covered with pines and a vast view over the Mediterranean, where is highlighted the area of "Las Playetas".

Benicassim, Castellón


International Festival of BEnicasim (FIB), from 04th to 07th August 2005Benicàssim, a village of Arab origin, is a cradle of tourism if Costa Azahar, not only for its magnificent beaches but also its rough mountains that are very close to the coast, forming the Desierto de las Palmas. The proximity between ocean and mountains may seem to fog the horizon between them. With the spectacular development of the town and the apartments near the sea, Benicàssim has converted into a one the most important the tourist destinations of the Spanish Mediterranean coast.

Columbretes Islands, Castellón


A treinta millas del Grau se levanta el archipiélago de las Islas Columbretes, cuatro grupos de islotes de origen volcánico que aparecen a los ojos de los visitantes como barcas varadas en el mar. La mayor, "L’Illa Grossa", tiene una extensión de 14 hectáreas. Son de una belleza incomparable y constituyen una Reserva Natural protegida.

A pocos kilómetros de Almassora, en la ruta hacia el sur de la provincia está Burriana, ciudad de rancio abolengo. Es el primer núcleo urbano de la comarca de La Plana y se remonta al siglo IX. Destaca su interesante casco urbano y en él, varios edificios de los siglos XIII al XVIII. Es también conocida como la Cuna de la Naranja, en cuyo honor recientemente se ha levantado un museo.

Nules, Castellón


A cinco kilómetros está Nules, la antigua Noulas, que figura en los itinerarios romanos. También hay en esa población innumerables vestigios de la época romana. Y junto a ella, Mascarell, todavía rodeada de una muralla cuadrangular construida de tapial de argamasa, barro y ladrillo. Muy cerca, la playa, con un desarrollado conjunto de apartamentos y residencias veraniegas. Hay que destacar en ella la singularidad del Parque "L’Estany", una amplia laguna de agua dulce junto al Mediterráneo.

Monofa, cuyo nombre significa "lugar de pozos", es una población situada junto a la desembocadura del río Belcaire que aun conserva vestigios de sus antiguas murallas; es un típico pueblo huertano cuyo barrio marítimo posee una buena playa que ha conocido recientemente un creciente desarrollo como centro veraniego agrupando a numerosos chalets y villas.

Chilches, Castellón


Chilches y sus cuidadas playas, con un amplio y moderno paseo marítimo junto a villas y apartamentos, dan paso al final de nuestro recorrido por "Costa Azahar": Almenara, donde se conserva el castillo de construcción árabe, que jugó un importante papel a lo largo de la historia, desde El Cid, hasta las guerras carlistas, pasando por la conquista de Jaime I y la Guerra de la Independencia. Su playa se conoce con el nombre de Casa Blanca, antiguamente estaba poblada por un grupo de pescadores y agricultores que se agrupaban en barracas, convirtiéndose con el paso del tiempo en una moderna plaza turística.

Festival Internacional de Benicassim, que se celebra en verano entre los meses de Julio y Agosto.
