Pope Benedict XIII, known as 'Papa Luna', chose this as a place of seclusion and to launch the fight for the unity of the Catholic Church. The fortress stands on the highest point of the peninsula. The parade ground offers as a delightful balcony over the Mediterranean, and its keep makes the perfect place to see a panoramic view of the coastline. Lunch and continuation to Valencia.
