Oropesa del mar started life as a picturesque fishing village on the east coast of Spain approximately 80 kilometers north of the beautifully historic city of Valencia.

Featuring The Tower of the King,a great monument of defensive character that possesses Oropesa, nowadays one of the last known Valencian military buildings. Its aesthetics presents an unique, Renaissance style among the military architecture of the XVI century.

Today Oropesa has grown in size and stature alongside the Fantastic development that is Marina Dor, creating a bustling holiday town in the summer months and a quiet friendly village in the winter months.

There are many towns and villages within short driving distances to create a holiday adventure you will always remember. With over 300 days of beautiful sunshine here on the orange-blossom coast you are never far away from the lovely warm sunshine with average temperatures in summer around the 30 degree mark and in winter a chilly (for the spanish who have thin blood!) 10 degrees.

Costa del Azahar Oropesa del Mar

The coast of the province of Castellón, the most northernly in the region of Valencia, is called the Costa del Azahar, meaning orange-blossom coast. The mountains climbing back from the beaches make it an attractive area, if overdeveloped in parts. Unspoilt beaches can be found, though, and the nature reserve on the Columbretes Islands is an inviting option.

Costa del Azahar

The Costa del Azahar is the name given to the coastline of the autonomous province of Castellon on the eastern side of Spain.

The name Costa del Azahar means orange blossom coast and was given to the area because of the orange tree groves which can be found as you move inland from its beautiful sandy beaches.

Among the towns in the Costa del Azahar worth seeing are Castellon de la Plana which has 170,000 inhabitants and was founded by King James I of Aragon in the 13th century when he overcame the Moors. Some fascinating fortified remains of Castellon de la Plana remain, though most of its moats and towers were torn down in the 19th century.

Car Hire Spain is the best way to see this area of Spain and the town itself has some interesting landmarks. There is a 13th century Gothic cathedral (the Concatedral de Santa Maria), a bell tower and a 17th century hemp market (the Llotja del Cànem). The hemp market building is today used by the Castellon de la Plana university for holding temporary exhibitions and putting on events.

Having a car will also let you get to other spectacular areas of Spain with ease. The A70 road goes between Tarragona and Valencia with the latter city being 60 kilometres distance drive to the north.

The Costa del Azahar is absolutely chock a block with all kinds of different accommodation so finding somewhere to stay, whether you are looking for a hotel, flat, apartment or guesthouse, should not be a problem. Two of the four star hotels in the area which you can try are the Gran Hotel Peníscola on the sea promenade of Peníscola and the nearby Aparthotel Casablanca.

Peníscola is another part of the Costa del Azahar which has a steady tourist trade.
This fortified sea port was originally built by the Knights Templar in the 14th century before becoming the home of the Avignon Pope Benedict XIII.

Car hire Peníscola is certainly the best way to see the area. You can make the short drive up the impressive Peníscola castle which overlooks the Mediterranean Sea.

Indeed you even can sit on one of Peníscola’s fine beaches and enjoy the view of the castle while you soak up the sun rays.
Peníscola is also the base for one of Spain’s foremost comedy film festivals where you can catch a sight of movie stars from all over the world.

Costa del Azahar Oropesa del Mar • 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Costa del Azahar (Spanish for Orange Blossom Coast) or Costa dels Tarongers (Catalan for Orange tree Coast) is the name for the coast of the provinces Castellón and Valencia in Spain, from Alcanar to El Verger, Denia.

Well known towns on the Costa del Azahar include Peñíscola, Benicàssim, Castellón de la Plana, Sagunt, Valencia, Cullera, Gandia, Denia, and Xàbia.

Why should you visit the Costa del Azahar?

Well, lots of reasons. Some of them are the same as for any other Spanish coastal area, like good beaches, the climate, friendly people, lots of fresh seafood, tapas.
Then there are some reasons more specific to the Costa del Azahar, one being that the places on this coast are not at all comparable to the resorts you find on the more southern Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol. The tourism booms of the last century went largely past this area, airports were not being built and a two to three hour transfer on a coach was probably not the ideal scenario for the package tourist of the 70's.  So, although there is tourism, it is on a much smaller scale.
Another reason are the beautiful interior regions just behind the Orange Blossom Coast, called Baix Maestrat - excellent territory for rural tourism, including walking, off roading, horse riding, cycling. Plus you could easily combine this with a beach holiday, as it is only a short drive from the coast until you reach these unspoilt inner regions. Again, this has to do with a lack of development in the past. Where further south a large area of the hinterland has been developed with masses of  urbanisations of holiday homes, the building activity on this stretch of the Costa Azahar has been very limited so far.
In brief, although you could spend your whole holiday by the pool or the beach, this area is ideal if you seek an active holiday and like exploring.
If you choose to visit the Costa del Azahar you are going to come to real Spain, and English is not as widely spoken as further south. It is advisable to learn at least a few words of Spanish or to bring a phrase book when spending your holidays on the Orange Blossom Coast.
