Concatedral de Santa María

Castellón Province

In Valencian Gothic style, the city's handsome cathedral was completely rebuilt after being set ablaze during the civil war. Next to it stands its iconic octagonal bell tower, known as El Fadri. You can climb the tower at midday on weekdays (free) for a look at the bells and a great view over the town centre.
