FREE TOUR CASTELLÓ, FROM LA RAJOLA TO THE 21st CENTURY TILE
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.
Castelló has an Open Air Museum where you can discover colours, shapes, symbology and stories and all of this embodied in a unique and surprising medium: Ceramics .
