The capital of the province lives its culminating point with the Magdalena festivities, around March, depending on the religious calendar, and this is just one of the proposals. The Fine Arts and Contemporary Art (EACC) Museums are the compulsory visits in a cultural tour, in a mixture of cultural heritage and the narration of the most innovative art, relating to images, sculpture and performances.
Opposite to culture, nature in a pure state with an incursion to Isles Columbretes, a group of volcanic islands protected as Natural Reserve and located at only 56 km away from the East of Castellón.
