Arkeo Tour was born from an idea of a group of youngs from Andalusia and Madrid who loved its History, culture and heritage. Our team is made up of great professionals with extensive experience in managing of tourist groups and cultural visits in different parts of Spain. Most of us have trained on the street, collaborating in different archaeological sites, art galleries and museums. We consider that our land has great heritage and cultural potential that must be valued for both residents and tourists. We do not believe that transmitting our history is bored. We want you to enjoy it. May you live the experience. And that you impregnate yourself with the vestiges of our past. Join this adventure with us!

About the Tour

Come visit this ancient city-fortress and immerse yourself in a medieval fantasy like you never imagined.
Touring the fortress is walking in the footsteps of the Knights Templar who built it fascinated by the myths and legends that surround them. It is to see Charlton Heston become the hero and legendary that Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar was, it is to wander next to Papa Luna while he is leaning out of the castle windows he repeats the phrase "the true Pope is me" as the legend states, Or is it walking through Meereen herself with Tyrion, Missandei and Gray Worm in Game of Thrones.
Because there is a Peñíscola of history, enigmas, symbols and legends that takes us from the legendary Order of the Temple to the Pope who put all of Christianity in check.
But there is also a Peñíscola of cinema where we can recognize scenes from such fascinating films as Calabuch (1956) or Paris Tombuctú ( 1999) by Luis Garcia Berlanga; Anthony Mann's El Cid (1961), starring Charlton Heston, Sophia Loren; or series such as El Chiringuito de Pepe, the Ministry of Time or the audiovisual phenomenon Game of Thrones .

Book your route and we will leisurely walk through its narrow and steep streets with an Arab structure and a Mediterranean flavor. Above all, you cannot miss the Bufador , in the old town, where the sea water seeps in causing furious snorts, its fishing cuisine and the bustle of its streets at dusk.

A whole offer for the senses! Book your route now.

El tour me gustó mucho, pero la guia no se explicaba bien y no dió datos claros de los temas históricos que trató, aunque se esforzó mucho! Yo creo que estaba muy cansada!!

El Tour por Peñiscola con Macarena horrible. Empezó diciéndonos que aunq la aportación es voluntaria tuviéramos en cuenta que ella tiene q pagar una cantidad a la plataforma, lo repitió varias veces y de manera regular… El grupo demasiado grande, molestábamos a las tiendas y teniendo en cuenta el tamaño de las calles de peñiscola… Las explicaciones de la guía regulares… Nos fuimos a los 40 minutos dándole la propina correspondiente (que no se merecía en absoluto) q ella cogió rápidamente sin preguntar más q nuestro nombre, en fin… No fuimos los únicos, vimos al rato otra familia que se había ido y más tarde al grupo como con la mitad de participantes. No me extraña nada.
