In tour you will know the legends of Templars and Dragon Queens in a stunning city surrounded by the sea and fortified walls. Discover Peñíscola, a destination that was seen in Hollywood and Spanish movies. The city is loved by filmakers for its crystal-clear beach, its walled citadel and its castle crowning the highest rock. Peniscola has been a film set for Game of Thrones and El Cid. We will walk through the white streets of a fishing village and discover an imposing and impregnable castle which controls the passage of frigates and corsairs. The next stop in this tour will be at Sant Mateu, unknown but not to be forgotten for its historical links to Europe, and uniquely arched buildings. Explore Sant Mateu, the historical capital of the Maestrazgo, strewn with buildings reminiscent from a glorious past to discover why it was a headache for European kings and Roman popes. This town was a hiding place for the Cathars fleeing the incipient Inquisition in the south of France.
