Day Trip to Sagunto
Starting from the Rastro at 8.30 and returning at approximately 6; 30 pm.
What’s to see around town? The town is full of surprises.
Try not to miss any of these: We have a guide to help us.
The Roman Theatre. It’s constructed right into the mountain face, and you can have fun with the acoustics.
The Castle. A lofty 558 feet high. Not recommended for anyone who gets breathless but it’s worth the scramble up onto the ridge.
Archaeological Museum. Small but well worth a visit.
St Mary’s Church, situated in the Playa Major this is a gothic church worth taking time to explore, especially the fine alabaster windows and altar piece.
The Juderia. The old Jewish Quarter. You’ll pass through it on your way to the castle. Said to be one of the best preserved of its kind in Spain.
The Calvary is a stunning oasis of peace; a park encountered walking back down from the castle.
Explore the small craft shops, the local bars and café’s, the elegant Plazas and take a little time to sit outside with your coffee and ruminate on times gone by.
I also have a number of restaurants recommended by the Tourist Office, not by me.
To finish off our day we move to the Coves of Sant Josep where we will board a boat, to allow us to take in the fantastic scenery on our journey to the centre of the earth, along the still waters of Europe’s longest navigable underground river.
