Càlig is an inland town in the Valencian Community with just over 2,000 inhabitants, belonging to the Baix Maestrat region, located 123 meters above sea level and 80 km from its capital, Castellón.
Located just five minutes from the coast, it offers you the advantages of being able to enjoy the tranquility of a small town (where even children can play in the street), the hospitality and friendliness of its people, as well as the proximity to towns such as Vinaròs, Benicarló and Peñiscola, where you can enjoy its beaches, its shops, its gastronomy, its shopping and leisure centres, its culture and its history, without forgetting the historic capital of the Ports region, Morella, with a visit bound to its castle and its walls.
The situation of Càlig is privileged, since it allows you to visit its surroundings and, on the other hand, enjoy the peace and tranquility that characterizes inland towns. The monuments you will find are:
The Hermitage of Ntra. Señora del Socorro: an 18th century building in an academic Baroque style, just 1 km away. of the population, it is the most emblematic and beloved place of the Caligenses.
