  • If you have mobility issues you are going to struggle. The entry should be free for disabled guests according to info. Talking about the castle, we paid 5 euros each to get in. The castle is beautiful, there’s a lot to see. Views are stunning and you see the whole city from the top.
  • A beautiful castle and an amazing landscape over the Peniscola town from the balcony of the castle. The castle is kept in good condition, good time spent here to relax. Also nice vibe from the beach, from the water, because of the castle and the village that surround him.😍❤❤
