Benicàssim (Costa del Azahar, Spain)

Benicàssim is one of the gems of the Costa del Azahar in Castellon province in Spain’s Valencia region. Its beach villas are especially distinguished. Benicàssim was used as a hospital town for the Republican forces in the Spanish Civil War. Visitors in the 1930s included Ernest Hemingway and the Cuban writer Alejo Carpentier, who stayed at the Villa Pons. Here are 4 photos from July 2004, two of them of the Villa Pons.
