If you are a lover of nature and if you want to enjoy the beauty of nature and a coast line with a long stretch of tall mountains, then there is no better place than the Castello do la Plana. This is a part of the Valencian community and the capital of the province of Castellon. Known for its treacherous mountain range stretching parallel to the Mediterranean Sea for a distance of about 112 kms, the place is most popular for its natural beauty. The beautiful beach, rich vegetation and the tall mountain range are welcome signs for the tourists to spend their holiday in the midst of stunningly beautiful scenery of nature. Â
The town of Castello de la Plana was built by an order of His Majesty King Jaume who in the year 1251 ordered people to move from the mountain to the present city, thereby signifying the birth of the city. The people of Castello have the tradition of working with ceramics which they are believed to have learnt from the Arabs.
Places to visit:
Castello is blessed with many natural spots like Desert de les Palmes which has one of the oldest monasteries of Spain. The other popular place of visit is the natural park called âSerra d’Espada’.
