CASTELLÓN ARQUEOLÓGICO


A walk through the sites that were home to the Iberians, Romans and the Andalusi - Castellón de la Plana / Castelló de la Plana

 

“Castellón Arqueológico” is a trip to the past through different itineraries that allow you to visit and discover the architectural, urban and natural environment as the Castellón population would have experienced it from the second millennium before Christ to the first millennium A.D. It is a journey through the places that were home to the Iberians, Romans and Andalusi; an environment in which Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Greeks and Romans established a commercial network that gave rise to extensive development with major technical, social and religious innovations that have lasted to the present day.

“Castellón Arqueológico” combines an important historical educational objective with an attractive offering of signposted routes where the visitor can relive other times and enjoy the archaeological treasures of Castellón.
