Tour description

The Grau de Castello is the seafaring expression of the city, from there every day the boats leave for the sea to bring the best of products: fish of exceptional quality and variety.

In the old fishing neighborhood we will learn about the Historical Traditions of fishing, the characters of its streets, the buildings, the growth and the arrival of many people who came in search of work. This is your tour to discover the seaside district of the city taking a walk by the Sea .

Itinerary:

The tour will begin in Plaza Miquel Peris i Segarra , at the gates of the Mediterranean and postcard of the fishing district, where the sea breeze is already noticeable. From this square we will discover the Church of San Pedro , the remains of the Torre del Pinaret and we will go to see the flying train, La Panderola .

On the way we will pass by two of the oldest Gastronomic Cathedrals of the Grau. Once we arrive at La Panderola Park, we will find the old platform, the old garages and one of the locomotives that still remain from the most famous freight and passenger train that crossed the entire city from the 19th century to the mid-20th century. the maritime district to the port docks.

Then we will enter the old town to discover the emblematic figure of Pepa Wells just before reaching Calle Barceló , which still retains the old sailor aroma that permeates the neighborhood.

We will arrive at the Centennial Clock Building and we will see first-hand the avant-garde work of Juan Ripollés.

We will access the Port Zone , and at the foot of the sea, next to the Jardines del Puerto, we will really discover what it is that they call " the Arrocito de Castelló ", which Manolo García already named in his famous song.

We will enjoy walking through the leisure and commercial area that includes Puerto Azahar . Contemplating the merchandise sheds , its docks, watching the ships set sail from the Marina and admiring the old port lighthouse , which was moved stone by stone from its initial location.

And we will head towards the Fishing Port , passing through the Puerto Azahar esplanade, where there is a wide range of catering establishments, the Real Club Náutico de Castelló , to end up at the Fish Market and the docks where the fishing fleet moors. Just before ending this visit at the starting point, Plaza Miquel Peris y Segarra.
