Peniscola lies to the south of Barcelona, a resort that still has pockets of quality charm. However, it has seen tourist development too. Its old town is a web of cobbled, winding streets and whitewashed houses. Pretty as a postcard? You better believe it. With its pleasant promenade, you can't help but enjoy walks along the sandy beach, exploring the castle and pretty parks. However, time spent in Peniscola is more than just a sun and sand resort. It's a trip to the city in the sea, as it's affectionately known.
