Come and explore a municipality bursting at the seams with beauty and monuments. A must-visit if you’re keen to experience the incredible inland of the province of Castellón.

Located in El Baix Maestrat, Sant Mateu promises a great getaway full of diverse urban landscapes steeped in history. The Historic Centre is populated with buildings dating all the way back to the 13th century that flaunt stone façades and Gothic and Renaissance arches. The wool trade brought prosperity to the destination in the medieval period. So come with us to take a look around and see some great sights. 

What to see in Sant Mateu

Make sure you don’t miss the Town Hall, a 15th century building in the Gothic style, nor El Marqués de Villores Palace, which was built in the Renaissance style in the 16th century. Many ruins of the old Walls are still standing, enabling you to get an idea of where they used to lay. In some streets, you’ll even see arrow slits and other architectural elements. Plaza Mayor, also known as Plaza del Ángel, dates back to the 13th century and is the sentimental and historical heart of Sant Mateu. 

Next up on your explorations of Sant Mateu is the Gothic Oven, where you will find the Tourist Information Centre, and San Mateo Apóstol Archpriest Church, a magnificent church whose beauty inside and out will take you aback. The building is one of the greatest exponents of Valencian Gothic architecture and you’re sure to get some incredible photos. 

Your to-visit list in Sant Mateu continues with Santa Ana Monastery (also known as Religiosas Agustinas Monastery), San Pedro Church, the oldest church in the town which was built in the 13th century, and Borrull Palace. The latter was built in the 15th century in the Gothic style and is a joy to look at. And don’t forget to take a photo in front of La Mare de Déu Fountain which is dedicated to the virgin and surrounded by columns. 

You’re going to want to set aside some time to visit three fascinating museums: the Archpriest Parish Collection, Juan Cano Forner Paleontological Collection and Sant Mateu Municipal Collection. 

Continue soaking up Sant Mateu’s heritage with an excursion to Nuestra Señora de los Ángeles Sanctuary, which sits in a beautiful nature area that will take you aback. Sant Mateu is also a great destination for lovers of hiking and cycling who can follow all sorts of signposted trails. So what are you waiting for? Fancy coming for a getaway?
