Activities specially designed to entertain and teach with history
Benissanó Castle offers a wide programme of educational and leisure activities to take advantage of this unbeatable cultural enclave. These activities contain history, traditions and a lot of fun.

The proposals that we present are varied in terms of duration, contents, work dynamics and resources used, but all of them have as a common framework a unique space: The castle and its surroundings.

The main objective is to transmit values of respect towards the cultural heritage.

We have prepared a series of activities that will allow you to organise a morning or a day à la carte.

The basic and essential activity is the visit to the castle and to it, if you want, you will be able to add complementary activities according to the time and budget you have.
