We are a team of travelers who believe that "the trip" is more than just going from one place to another, we believe that traveling has to be the reason to delve into and enjoy beyond what is imagined, to seek happiness, to smile and experiment. Our name is a tribute to the first traveler of the Iberian Peninsula, who back in the s. IV traveled from Galicia to Egypt, Palestine and Constantinople leaving her experience written in a manuscript and also to all the travelers who, like her, have discovered new places, amazing flavors, generating excitement and curiosity.

Tour description

Get to know the city of Castelló de La Plana at first sight and discover everything it can offer you, hand in hand with our native guides.

Touring the most outstanding historical moments; from the Middle Ages to modernism, learning about its heritage and discovering its legends. In a recommended and comfortable walk through the most significant places in the city.

Itinerary:

Our Free Tour will begin in the Plaza Mayor , next to the door of the Co-Cathedral of Santa María , where from its 13th century door, we will learn about the origins of Castelló. El Fadrí , the postcard of the city, next to the 18th century Town Hall and the Central Market will be the starting signal for a route that will surprise you.

We will continue along Calle Colón , which will lead us from the Lonja del Cáñamo of the 16th century to the modernism of the dawn of the 20th century with the arrival of the railway, in La Farola and Parque Ribalta , another of the unique postcards and lung of this city.

Along the way we will find the Casa Dels Cuatre Cantons ; modernist and Andalusian, the Post Office Building , one of the most beautiful in Castelló or the Air Raid Shelter . From there, we will go to see the avant-garde work of Juan Ripollés , we will meet King James I of Aragon , El Conquistador, founder of the city.

Then we will visit Alloza street , with its medieval air, the Puerta del Sol, the Old Casino and the Plaza de la Paz ; where a flying train passed; that will take us to the most curious and mysterious alley in the entire city.

And we will end where we started, in the Plaza Mayor , next to the tavern area and a meeting place for the people of the city to have vermouth. A comfortable and fascinating route and without going up any slope, which is not called Castelló de La Plana for nothing.

Quico ha sido muy profesional, conoce muy bien los monumentos, y la vida y obra de los personajes ilustres de la ciudad. Nos ha gustado lo bien que habla de las tradiciones culturales de Castellón y cómo ha respondido a mis preguntas sobre ello. Julián y Carmen.
