"Long Castle Standing Guard Over the Quiet City" Sagunto by DSwede

Sagunto Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 13 photos

Sagunto is approximately 2/3 of the way from Valencia to Castellón. It has some very visible links to the old days, but has escaped the hustle of the modern era.

It is typically a sleepy town. I've passed through it a few times and never found too much activity (other than during festivals or Semana Santa).

The district can be walked in a few hours. The castle itself, which is quite long along the ridge line of the hill may require ~2hrs by itself.

The coast lines here are quite nice and popular, particularly for locals living in the nearby communities. However the town is a few kilometers from the beach, so transportation is not always the easiest.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The beaches are nice, although may require private transport to get there.
  • Cons:Accommodation options are limited, so may just make it a day trip.
  • In a nutshell:The castle and beaches are the main points, the rest of the city is rather average.
