Be immersed in Castelló de la Plana’s fishing tradition at Museu de la Mar, a museum that seeks to keep the origins and heritage of the city’s maritime life alive.

The museum displays over 270 objects and 70 photographs related to the operations at Puerto de Castellón, the city’s port, and Columbretes Islands. Many of the pieces you will see have been given by private donors.

Museu de la Mar is divided into two areas. The first houses boat models and plans as well as a photography exhibition about the construction of a llaud boat. The second, meanwhile, displays mechanical items, lanterns and different models of fishing equipment, from hooks and lines to long lines.

The museum’s top three attractions are a 1930 wooden boat, the first semi-diesel engine and trawling equipment that is hanging from the ceiling. Make sure you don’t miss them as you make your way around the space.

Castelló de la Plana has a long history of traditions and customs. Visit the city’s museums to travel back in time and find out everything there is to know about the destination.
