This is a stunningly beautiful place - reached either by walking 10-15 minutes up a steep hill or via a taxi. We walked up. Very glad. Views are incredible - please see below.

It's a great castle, inside and out, not that cheap, but not too expensive either. The view is breathtaking. If you are in the area, do not miss it.

Peniscola is like a tale of 2 cities. The modern town, then the town below the castle which is beautifully old and quaint. Lots of cobbled streets lead to the castle, they are filled with shops restaurants and bars and come alive in the evening. We just love this very Spanish town

A lovely walk up through the old town up to the castle. However, it is a steep cobbled road, and rather slippery through years of use.

Interesting history in this old castle, but the views of the Sea from its ramparts were fantastic. Worth the climb!
