Peñiscola is a resort town, offering a thriving, multi-cultural atmosphere from late June through early September, complete with numerous local festivals and celebrations typical in Spain. For instance, an international-scale jazz festival is usually held in July, having featured such legends as B.B. King in the past. Early August always marks the return of the Baroque Music Festival, accompanied by a spectacular musical fireworks show. In mid-September, Peñiscola’s patron saint festival (Virgen de Ermitana) lasts for two weeks, and is a festival to end all festivals, including traditional Spanish dances, bull fights, music, fireworks, exhibitions, and horse parades! These and other festivals held throughout the year help the town pack a punch. Although activity in Peñiscola slows down during the off-season (between festivals), the castle and surrounding old city on the peninsula remain interesting, active, open for business, and scenic year-round for visitors who prefer the less expensive rates of off-season travel.Read more

Additional Location Information
The apartment is located in the "Las Atalayas" neighborhood, less than 1 km. from the historic city center of Peñiscola. A small pool is available down one flight of stairs from the apartment, shared by a few other families in the small complex. Right across the street is a large public pool which only charges 2 Euros per person for all day use, and includes a restaurant, bar, game room, and a tennis court.

A favorite activity for many is to walk or bike along the 5 km beach boardwalk which stretches north from Peñiscola, showcasing a beautifully kept, pristine sandy beach. The apartment features two folding "cruise" bikes, and additional bikes are available for rent in various locations. There are family-friendly sections of the beach closer to town, or less populated sections better for adults to the north. Numerous rocky coves can be found heading south from Peñiscola. You can also explore a hidden mountain castle or a monastery by hiking or mountain biking through the "Parc Natural de la Serra d'Irta." Many enjoy just spending the day on the panoramic beaches, lounging in the pool area, or exploring the many shops and restaurants along the rustic, quaint streets of the "casco antiguo" (historic, old part of the town). Fantastic day or overnight trips by car include Valencia (90 minutes), Barcelona (120 minutes), Morella (100 minutes), Delta de Ebro (45 minutes), Teruel (120 minutes), etc. Peñiscola is a superb vacation destination, either as an ultimate destination, or as part of a tour of Spain.
