Benicarló is a town and municipality in the north of the province of Castelló, part of the Valencian Community, on the Mediterranean coast between the towns of Vinaròs and Peñíscola, not far south of the river Ebro.
Tourism, agriculture and some manufacturing are the major industries. Benicarló is part of the Taula del Sénia free association of municipalities.
Benicarló is served by a train station on the Valencia-Barcelona line, and is connected by road via the A7 motorway.
Benicarló, an important fishing and tourism port center on the Costa del Azahar, has a long beach and a historic center replete with remarkable examples of imposing architecture.
The origins of Benicarló go back to the Middle Ages, when it was a small Arab city, keeping its original urban layout attractive until today, with many of its houses displaying their coats of arms.
In the center of the village we find the church of Sant Bertomeu, a baroque temple with a beautiful facade carved in stone, and the spiral columns. In the interior we can visit the Parish Museum, with interesting exhibitions of Gothic art works.
On a nearby hill stands the hermitage of Sant Gregori, a place of popular pilgrimage every May 9.
Maritime tradition of Benicarló can be witnessed by its active fishing port, next to which there is a beach that extends to the neighboring town of Peñíscola, undoubtedly one of the main attractions of the city.
Benicarló, facing the sea, offers us a coastal landscape, made up of soft sandy beaches, as well as protected forest areas further inland.
Speaking of Gastronomy in Benicarló, it is about talking about the products in a fertile land, delicious fish and traditional desserts, whose recipes are jealously guarded by the masters of Mediterranean cuisine.

For fish lovers in any Porto restaurant, savor the "suquet" with the rich variety of fish that arrive daily and publicly auctioned at the port, where you can also buy extraordinary prawns, fantastic squid, cuttlefish, octopus, and many others delicious seafood caught in the water daily.

For those who enjoy meat, the great variety coming from the interior of the province, are also made typical dishes like "bode roasted" or "rabbit Maestrat".
Benicarló has a typically Mediterranean climate and is mild all year round.
