We walk along the paths leading to the magic mountain: the Penyagolosa

In the inner part of Castellón, in the foothills of the impressive peak Penyagolosa; there, we find the sanctuary dedicated to Saint John the Baptist. A unique place, full of mystery and destination of pilgrimages which have been taking place since times of the Christian Reconquista. These pilgrimages were conformed as a unique feature, tracing paths from different towns up to this core centre, with customaries and rituals for each one of them.

Weekends in September and October, you will be able to visit the historic town centres, the wine cellar, mills, museums, unique landscapes, old workshops and much more.
