Discover Oropesa del Mar
Enjoy a well-deserved holiday in Oropesa del Mar, a popular tourist destination on the coast of Castellon. You can start your trip at the castle of Oropesa, presiding over the area from a hilltop. This medieval castle offers a great panoramic view of the town that will help you get a feel for the lay of the land.
Head down from the castle through the narrow streets to the iglesia de la Virgen de la Paciencia, a church which is home to an image of the patron saint. Also, if you want to learn more about the history of Oropesa Del Mar and the wealth of its natural surroundings, the Naturhiscope Interpretation Centre is your next stop. Finally, don’t forget the Cards Museum, which is also well worth a visit.
Book a cheap trip to Oropesa del Mar to discover the Torre del Rey, its most emblematic monument. This tower was built in 1413 on a promontory on the promenade Paseo Marítimo del Rey to help defend against pirate attacks. Don’t miss the chance to climb the staircase inside, as you’ll be rewarded with wonderful views of the coast.
The coast offers Oropesa four idyllic beaches that enjoy blue flag certification. The most popular is the Morro de Gos beach, ideal for water sports and enjoying a snack and a drink in the beach bars you’ll find on the sand. La Concha beach is another very good option, with quiet waters and sheltered from the wind by the shape of the bay.
Thanks to the unbeatable package deals to Oropesa Del Mar you can enjoy hidden quiet spots surrounded by thick vegetation. Take a walk along the nature path of the Vía Verde del Mar and, when you reach the port, head down the road that leads to La Renegà.
