near El Grao, Valencia (España)

A winter walk around the harbour, which serves as harbour to the larger city of Castellón de la Plana. There is a working port for larger ships, a dock exclusively for fishing boats, and near-shore moorings for smaller pleasure boats. There are lots of restaurant options, several were very busy with locals in the off-season, and our hosts favoured two of these. The area apparently carters to larger numbers of tourists in the high-season.

Recorded in January, 2018.

Rest. Rincon del Marinero

This restaurant was busy in the off season , is located along an inconspicuous side street on the edge of town, and has an attached parking area (at the start waypoint).
Sacred architecture

Town, Church area

Walk through the small plaza in front of the Church, the "Plaça Miquel Peris i Segarra". The decoration around the main church doors is beautiful.
Mooring point

Fish Dock

The dock was quiet on the day with continuous moored fish boats, not crewed up. Not sure about the high-season for fishing, times for going to sea, landing, and marketing the catch. Plenty of contented cats were sleeping in the sun on top of the fishing gear stored along the docks. Nets were strung out for repairs by hand.
Provisioning

Terra Milles

A seafood restaurant with outdoor seating along the fish dock. Apparently very popular with locals during the off-season.
