Located to the north of the Valencia Region, Castellón is one of the parts of Spain that has best preserved its Mediterranean flavour – as exemplified by the quality of its beaches, its cuisine, culture and lifestyle.

For this reason, Castellón continues to be one of the favourite holiday destinations for Spanish people, who are attracted to the peace and tranquillity of its tourist destinations as well as the easy transport links provided by both the A7 motorway and the extensive rail network, which connects the province.

Vinaròs, Peñíscola, Alcalá-Alcossebre, Oropesa del Mar, Benicasim, and Castellón de la Plana are widely known destinations and highly valued by all their visitors because, in addition to excellent beaches, they offer authentic Mediterranean cuisine in which products such as paella, prawns from Vinaròs, artichokes from Benicarló, soles from Peñíscola, or tomatoes from Alcalá have their place…

A story of water and life

The province of Castellón has eight parks and is the second most mountainous province in Spain. For nature lovers, this province is a must-see enclave. The good communications and proximity to the main towns and cities make these natural areas ideal for excursions.

Close to our roots

In terms of architecture, there is a great variety of styles, from the Romanesque of Castellfort to Valencian Modernism, which is particularly well represented in Castellón.

The endless network of museums in the province is a faithful testimony to a cultural wealth where the traditional mixes with the innovative, and the latest trends coexist with the most endearing folklore. The different regions of Castellón also have a valuable musical and literary heritage and a rich artistic and cultural offer that will surprise you.

Food and tradition

The Mediterranean diet was born in Castellón, and there are many products that nature offers that are transformed into typical dishes to satisfy the most demanding palates. Rice, vegetables, fish and seafood are the basic elements of our province’s cuisine.

Oil from thousand-year-old olive trees, almond trees, the Benicarló artichoke, Vinaròs king prawns, dozens of varieties of oranges and clementines, sauces such as all i oli (based on garlic and olive oil), are products that can be found on the tables of our restaurants throughout the province of Castellón.

And all of this is washed down with medicinal spring water or some surprisingly good wines.

Adventure and sport

The landscape of Castellón is not only an invitation to contemplation, but also to all kinds of sports and outdoor activities. Sailing, surfing, kitesurfing, mountain biking, potholing, canyoning, horse riding, golf, paragliding, flying with or without a motor, parachuting… the list of activities that can be practised in Castellón is almost endless.

Wellness tourism is a bet on the future in Castellón, both for the quality of its waters and for the innovation of its spas.
