Peniscola (Stadt im Meer)

Über Peniscola

Peniscola liegt mitten im spanischen Mittelmeer. Auf der Insel fehlen Orangen-, Oliven- und Mandelbäume natürlich nicht. Das Meer ist im Sommer und im Herbst immer sehr warm. Außerdem war Peniscola früher ein päpstlicher Sitz.


Die Burg von Peniscola wurde 1922 als Internationale Kunsthistorischen Sehenswürdigkeit ausgezeichnet. Sie liegt auf dem zweiten Platz nach der Alhambra von Granada der meistbesuchten spanischen Sehenswürdigkeiten. Die Templerburg ist auch wegen ihrer Architektur und Geschichte die herausragenste Sehenswürdigkeit der Stadt. Die große Stadtmauer wurde zwischen 1576 und 1578 erbaut. Das Stadttor Portal Fosc, auch Portal de Felipe genannt, ist eines der drei Zugänge zum historischen Viertel Peniscolas. Weitere historische Bauwerke sind zum Beispiel: Der Pfarrtempel und der Virgen del Socorro, der Artillerie-Park, mit vielen Pulvermagazinen, die von großen Palmen und Gärten umgeben sind.

Spiel und Spaß

Der Nordstrand Peniscolas Strand ist sehr schön. Das Meer dort ist sehr ruhig und der Strand ist ideal zum Sonnen. Es gibt dort auch regelmäßige Veranstaltungen, wie Beach-Volleyball oder Spiele für Kinder. An dem Strand kann man auch Segelboot, Kanu oder Tretboot fahren. Die Südküste Peniscolas ist sehr felsig und abschüssig. Es gibt dort nur kleine Strände. In der Nähe der Küste liegt das Naturschutzgebiet Sierra de Irta. Dort gibt es Berge mit der maximal Höhe von 573 Meter. In den kleinen Buchten von der Irta-Küste kann man sehr gut Angeln und Tauchen.

Madrid History

Madrid, SpainThere are two stories that go around about the founding of the city of Madrid.  The story that you will hear from most places is that Madrid was created as part of the westward expansion of the Roman Empire.  This is the popularized history of the city and that is the history that is told to many of the people around.  While this is an interesting way to look at it, most historians believe that the founding of Madrid was not initially by the Roman Empire, but rather was by Islamic forces that were looking for a garrison to place troops.  Because of the location of Madrid, it made an ideal garrison at the time for those forces and that is...
