Castelló de la Plana is popularly known as Castellón. It’s in the Valencia province and being a capital city, there is no lack of attractions in the city.

It’s wise to choose the Valencia Airport as your landing point, because many budget airlines operate from here and it’s easier to get cheap flights to Castelló de la Plana. There are plenty of hotels in Castelló de la Plana; hence, accommodation should not be an issue.

Finally, it was rebuilt in the year 1939, following Gothic style of architecture. The church is famous for its artwork and the bell tower named El Fadri. Inside the church, you can see an original Ribalta painting and a Vergara carving.

There are more than 1000 artwork in ceramic. The painting and sculpture sections are also very rich, featuring the works of Ribera, Ribalta, Romero de Torres, Rodrigo de Mongrell, Sorolla, Puig Roda, Osona,Porcar, Viciano, Adsuara, Benlliure, Gandarias and Vicent.
There are several beaches in the town, but tourists mainly visit Gurugu, El Pinar Beach and El Serradal. Gurugu is a very tidy beach and it’s a great place to play beach sports. El Pinar is a good place to swim and relax. While El Serradal is calmer than these two beaches, the quality of sand may not suit everyone’s taste as it is very coarse in nature.
