Experience the charming fishing village built on the cliffs of the Mediterranean, best known as of late for its role in the sets of The Game of Thrones and we can show you all the pop culture stops, along with its true history of greatness in medieval times, on your private tour.
Just under 2 hours north of the city of Valencia, Peñiscola in the province of Castellon is a lovely day trip from Valencia and a perfect quaint town to use a private guide in. Peñiscola was once a small fishing village but was rocketed onto the world stage in the 15th century for becoming the home to one of the Avingnon Popes during the Catholic church´s Western Schism. Pope Benedict XIII or better known here as the Papa Luna, made the castle built by the Templar Knights his home and Papal Palace. Throughout the Golden Age of Valencia, Peñiscola was an important port and remained a fishing hub throughout time. In modern times, the world famous Game of Thrones series was partially filmed here, with many spots from this show that can be pointed out for any fans. After a pleasant drive from Valencia or Castellón, we will walk around the medieval center with many splendid pictures spots with fabulous views of the mountains, the beaches, and the Mediterranean below. The Papa Luna castle, its gardens, interesting architecture and quaint streets will appeal to travelers of all ages. We can organize a traditional rice or seafood lunch together either on the beach or in the medieval quarter.
