Castellón extends on a flat ground between the mountains and the sea. It is the capital of the second most mountainous province in the peninsula and is bathed by the Mediterranean. It’s located on the 0 meridian, also called Greenwich, with the geographical diversity as its greatest attraction, which grows as we focus our sight on exact points. The city is experiencing an expansion process. It faces the sea and the new horizons provided by culture, which has always been, and is more and more established in its streets. Its unique landscapes and the white orange blossoms, which become oranges in autumn, turn this town into an indispensable stop to get to know the splendorous Valencian littoral.

The easiest way of travelling the distance between Castellón and Valencia is using a combination of subway (also known as Metro) and train service. Valencia subway net has 6 lines and all them converge in the city center. The airport has its own subway stop (called “Aeroport”) at one end of Lines 3 and 5, that are represented on green and red in this Metro Valencia network map. In the airport, you have to follow the metro sign that will lead you downstairs by elevator.

Once you reach the city center, you have to go up to the street and you will be just in front of the train station, called “Estació del Nord” or North Station. When you enter the train station you will see the ticket office on your right and ticket machines just in front of ticket office. You may buy either office or machine and it will cost you 4.5€ one-way ticket. There is a regular train service (regional type is the cheapest) between Valencia and Castellón cities, so every 30-45 minutes there is one. Please, consider that full name for Castellón city might appear on the ticket machine as “Castellón de la Plana”, do not be confused: it is the same destination. This leg of the journey takes around 1 hour.
