The 79 sq. km belonging to the municipality, 17 of which run alongside the coast, are divided equally between forest areas and warm Mediterranean croplands, orange, olive and almond trees.
Peñíscola is known for its fourteen century castle, which is among the most important historical and artistic heritages in the country. The dominant castle provides a wonderful view of the old city and its surroundings.Throughout its history it has been a crossroad for all Mediterranean civilizations; the Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Aragonese and Catalans all of them appreciated its strategic location to control both the hinterland and trade routes.
