This is a tall and well-preserved mountain spur of the Iberian range in inland Spain. The Penyagolosa peak rises to 1,813m, providing a magnificent panorama over the surrounding province. The sanctuary of Sant Joan de Penyagolosa, an important site for annual pilgrimages, and extensive forests containing wild pine, black pine, faginea-type Lusitanian oak and others, all create rich scenery that visitors can enjoy. Access to the mountain is through the picturesque villages of Villahermosa del Río, Vistabella del Maestrazo and Xodos. This mountain peak is connected to the coast via the Long-Distance Hiking Route GR-33 leading down to Castellón de la Plana.
