During the first fortnight of August, the Castle of Pope Luna of Peñíscola will host, once again, the celebration of the XXIV edition of the International Festival of Ancient and Baroque Music. It is an event that, year after year, elevates the municipality to become the international epicentre of Baroque music. If you are staying at Apartamentos Tamarindos Peñíscola you can’t miss this unique opportunity that the city offers you at sea.
An event where you can enjoy with the whole family, from concerts, theatres and even an extraordinary pyromusical show on the shores of the Mediterranean.
