Castell Vell Itinerary

Castell Vell is a fortification of Andalusian origin. It was the capital city of the district until it was conquered by Jaume I in 1233, who divided the territory into Almassora and Castelló. The granting of the Privilege of Transfer to its inhabitants in 1251 resulted in the foundation of the current city of Castelló. Discover the Castell Vell Information Centre
