"I really don't know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea. I think (...) it's because we all came from the sea... And when we go back to the sea...  we are going back from whence we came." John F. Kennedy

Museum of the Sea in Peñíscola

Peñíscola

The Museum of the Sea is a welcoming exhibition space, located at a point that offers an impressive and privileged view of the sea.

It offers a collection of educational tools concerning local fishing dating from the Phoenician era to the present day, model ships showing the development of the types of vessels in the area, and even a little aquarium.

It shows the seafaring origins and antiquity of Peñíscola, as well as how the town was transformed around the port.

The archaeological pieces, mostly contributed by locals, come from both marine and land sites related to the ancient settlers at Peñíscola and its region and reflect this monumental city’s intense relationship with the sea.
