Things to do in Benicarló
Start your tour of Benicarló in its Old Town, where you will see the mainstays of the city: Calle Major and Calle Sant Joan. In the Middle Ages, both offered access to Benicarló, and today, they are affectionately called “Els quatre cantons” because this was where visitors could once see all four entrance gates to the city. Other examples of the destination’s cultural and historical wealth include: the town hall, Antigua Prisión or Casa del Marqués.
