En ocasiones no es el tiempo el que se detiene sino nosotros mismos. Es entonces cuando la velocidad de todo cuanto nos rodea se dispara y nosotros, impotentes, somos incapaces de mover un solo dedo. Da igual cuanto dure ese instante, pues uno desearía alargarlo hasta la eternidad. Un momento en que nada importa o, por el contrario, importa todo al tener la suficiente capacidad de centrar tu atención e interés. Segundos, minutos, en los que el mundo se amplifica y uno se pliega sobre si mismo para disfrutar de todo cuanto, mientras uno corre, le es imposible llegar si quiera a observar.

Peñíscola, often called the "Gibraltar of Valencia," and locally as "The City in the Sea", is a fortified seaport, with a lighthouse, built on a rocky headland about 67m high, and joined to the mainland by only a narrow strip of land. The history of the place goes back to the Iberians. Later the town became Phoenician, named Tyreche, then Greek, under the name Chersonesos (meaning "peninsula"). It was next captured by the Carthaginians under Hamilcar Barca; legend has it that this is the place where he made his son Hannibal swear an oath that he would never be a friend of Rome. The present castle was built by the Knights Templar between 1294 and 1307. In the fourteenth century it was garrisoned by the Knights of Montesa, and in 1420 it reverted to the Crown of Aragon. From 1415 to 1423 it was the home of the schismatic Avignon pope Benedict XIII (Pedro de Luna), whose name is commemorated in the Castell del Papa Luna, the name of the medieval castle. The castle where Benedict lived from 1417 until his death in 1423 was restored, improved and new walls were added in 1960 when Anthony Mann's film 'El Cid' was partially filmed there. The town and castle of Peñíscola played the role of Valencia. The castle is now a popular tourist attraction and the beaches and surrounding area are a popular family holiday resort. #peniscola #peñíscola #igerspeñiscola #knightstemplar #elcid #fiftyshades_of_history #ali_mark_spain2017 #capturing_spain #capturethemoment #igersspain #igersespaña #capturing_spain #loves_spain #loves_españa #españa #igerseurope #visit_spain #capturing_castles #castlesoftheworld #castlesofinstagram #architecture #loves_united_castles #loves_history #medieval #bluesky #castelldepapaluna
