During our guided tours we will show you some of the most beautiful corners and propose you different itineraries through the essential places to visit.
Tourism in Castellón
Castellón’s past is full of castles, Templars and fishermen and that is why today it is one of the most popular tourist destinations. It is a province that evokes unique sensations that only the Mediterranean can provoke. For this reason, Castellón is known as the Costa del Azahar, in honor of the delicate orange blossom and its cultivation par excellence throughout the province.
One of the most curious buildings you can visit thanks to our guided tours is the Planetarium. This building was inaugurated on 8th May 1991, and has become one of the favorite spots for the popularization of science in the Valencian Community. Located in the Grao area, it does not go unnoticed by any tourist due to its enormous white dome, 25 meters high.
Inside, there are several rooms that are used to hold exhibitions and conferences on astronomy and science. In addition, an impressive Foucault pendulum presides over the hall of the building, a curious object that serves to demonstrate the rotation of the Earth.

Guided tours in Peñíscola
Peñíscola is a must when you visit the Valencian Community. Iberians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines and Arabs have all passed though its streets, so you can immerse yourself in our guided tours and learn about curiosities from all the different cultures. A Templar city dominated by its monumental castle, one of the most famous fortresses in the worlds due to the fact that it has served as a stage on numerous occasions in the popular series Game of Thrones.
During our journey to the castle, you will be enthralled by one of the most unique and spectacular façade that exists: the Casa de las Pechinas is completely decorated with shells. Afterwards, you can reach the Lighthouse, which dates back to 1892, and enjoy unbeatable panoramic views.
Another wonder is the Bufador, a peculiar 6-metre hole formed naturally in the rocks, allowing seawater to pass through. When there is a storm or a strong swell you can even hear a curious howl, hence its name, which is so characteristic of the sound that the waves make when they break. If you decide to sign up for our guided tours, we assure you that the Bufador will be an obligatory stop. And if you would like to learn more about life at sea, don’t forget to come with us to the Museo de la Mar.
Of course, you cannot leave Peñíscola without visiting Sierra de Irta, located on the south coast. For nature lovers, walking through its Natural Park can be one of the most enriching experiences.
