Castellón is one of the provinces of the Valencian Community, Spain. The capital of the province is Castellón de la Plana, but most of the visitors dedicate the visit to the idyllic Costa del Azahar. Castellón is also the second most mountanous province of Spain, rewarding off the beaten path visitors with wonderfull spots.

Cities[edit]

  • Castellón de la Plana, capital of the province.
  • Benicàssim, beach and good nightlife, internationally known for the Festival Internacional de Benicàssim music festival in July.
  • Morella, small historical town, base for exploring the Maestrazgo mountains.
  • Oropesa del Mar, beach town hosting the huge complex Marina d'Or.
  • Peniscola, coastal town with an impressive castle on the shore.

Other regions[edit]

  • Islas Columbretes, an uninhabitated archipelago situated 50 Km from Castellón, great for snorkeling and diving.
  • Macizo de Penyagolosa, a natural park in the mountains. Excellent for hiking.

Understand[edit]

The province of Castellón receives less tourists than Alicante and Valencia, but that it's mostly an advantage as it doesn't suffer from the complains of "mass tourism" in its beaches, offering a perfect destination for those looking for more relaxing vacations.

Peniscola is often listed as one of the nicest towns in Spain and Benicàssim attracts visitors from the whole world for its Festival Internacional de Benicàssim in summer. Also being relatively unknown the province offers several unvaluable opportunities for rural tourism.

Get in[edit]

As May 2014 the Castellón de la Plana Airport doesn't has commercial flights, so to reach the province trains, buses or private cars are needed.
