Travel Day to Barcelona with a stop in Peniscola

We packed up and said good by the staff of Casa Grande, No 20 Desamparados St.

Peniscola, often called the "Gibraltar of Valencia," and locally as "The City in the Sea".  The present castle was built by the Knights Templar between 1294 and 1307.[3] From 1415 to 1423 it was the home of Pope Benedict XIII.   The castle where Benedict lived from 1417 until his death in 1423 was restored, improved and new walls were added in 1960 when Anthony Mann's film El Cid was partially filmed there.

From Peniscola we drove to Barcelona.   Checked into the hotel and connected with Martha who had been in the City for a few days and then went out to explore and have dinner.
