General Information

The city of Castellón de la Plana was built in the middle of the XIII century between the Mediterranean sea and orchards of orange and lemon trees. In the beginning it was surrounded by a big wall but soon the population increased quickly and by the end of XVIII century the walls were demolished. Castellón is today an open and luminous city where you can find beautiful churches and buildings built during the XVIII century when its demographic and financial development had an important growth thanks to the trade of hemp.

The city keeps today its provincial charm and nobility with its lovable traditions, its legends closely transmitted generation after generation and even its family and mythology..

Castellón de la Plana today, with 170.000 inhabitants, is at the same time a city of today keeping its yesterday traditions and all its hopes for tomorrow.
