This castle is very well worth the trip. Save yourself; take a taxi up to the castle, and stroll back down.

Have visited a few castles and this was one of the best- amazing history and well set out. Grey show by the actors doing the tour guide- couldn’t understand any of it but very entertaining anyway! Must see in Peniscola 👍🏼

Excellent half a day looking round the castle had some lunch/ tapas in the cobbled streets of the old town and then looked around the artillery gardens in the afternoon, all on the same ticket. If you are over 60 you get a reduced admission

We spent an hour or so looking around the castle. I’d highly recommend it for the views alone. How often does a castle have such amazing sea views to add to the dramatic rocky setting. On the day of our visit a clear blue sky...More

My family and I visited the castle one afternoon. We bought loads of souvenirs and presents to take home. The views were beautiful and streets were taking you back in time. Perfect location to have lunch with my family.

We didn't enter the castle. This is not a review about the castle itself, it's about the whole experience walking near the castle and eating in the surroundings. First of all, each road has a pleasant surprise hidden somewhere. We got a feeling of being...More

We spent a day at Peniscola. The castle was very cool with incredible views of the ocean and the city. Must use the headsets to get a since of the place but well worth it.

Not in the old town. We parked in a larger car park under the prom. It was enormous but worth the cost.
