At around 7 am we will pick you up from your hotel in Valencia.

Starting driving direction to Morella after 2:15 hrs  travelling almost parallel to the beautiful coastline.

We’ll wander along the steep, characteristic cobblestone streets, and we’ll stop at the different local craft stalls. We’ll end at the historic castle, which stands tall at the top of the town. Did you know that El Cid Campeador once stayed here?

We’ll enter this Islamic fortress built in the 13th century, and you’ll discover how it gained importance for the Crown of Aragon. After the tour of the castle, you’ll have some free time to keep exploring Morella and even try some of the delicious local cuisine.

After lunch, at arround 15:00 hrs we will continuou driving 1 hr. direction to Peñíscola. On the journey, we’ll reveal the origins of this historical city, famed for a very controversial historical figure, Pope Luna.

Once we reach our destination, we’ll first visit the castle, located on a hilltop at the shore. Pope Luna, also known as Antipope Benedict XIII, is one of the most polemic religious figures in the history of Spain, and he used this fortress as his palace and personal library.

We’ll then continue our tour, visiting the old town of Peñíscola, which is home to Islamic, Roman and Templar architecture. Not only that, but we’ll follow the outline of the old wall that protected the city. You’ll feel like you’ve travelled back in time.

After a complete day exploring, we’ll return to Valencia and drop you back at your hotel.
