Castellón de la Plana, Castelló de la Plana, or Castellón, is the capital city of the province of Castellón, in the Valencian Community, Spain, in the east of the Iberian Peninsula, on the Costa del Azahar by the Mediterranean Sea. The mountain range known as Desert de les Palmes rises inland north of the town; the Prime Meridian or Greenwich Meridian,crosses Castelló de la Plana, intersects with the 40th Parallel, commemorates it with the Meridian Park,and the exact point where this occurs can be visited. The first known building in the area was the Moorish castle of Fadrell, near the Alqueries de La Plana; the town proper was founded in 1251, after the conquest of the Moorish Kingdom of Valencia by King James I of Aragon in 1233. James granted royal permission to move the town from the mountain to the plain on September 8, 1251, tradition claims that the move was completed by the third Sunday of Lent, 1252. During the Middle Ages, the city was protected by moats and towers, a church was built becoming a cathedral.
In the 16th century the town was one of the last strongholds in the Revolta de les Germanies. It supported Archduke Charles of Austria in the War of the Spanish Succession, but was taken by the troops of Philip d'Anjou. In the 19th century, the city walls were torn down and it began to expand, a process interrupted by the War of Independence against Napoleon and the Carlist Wars. In 1833 Castelló became the capital of the newly constituted province. In the second half of the 19th century, the city again began to expand, marked by the arrival of the railway, the enlargement of the port and the construction of representative buildings and parks. In 1991 a university was established, set upon a modern campus; the local economy is based on industry and craft-work. Most of the historical buildings are located around the Plaça Major; these include: The Concatedral de Santa Maria, built in a Gothic-style in the 13th century and reconstructed one century after destruction by fire. The present building is another reconstruction after the demolition ordered by the council during the Spanish civil war.
The Ajuntament, erected at the beginning of the 18th century. It features a Tuscan-style façade rising up over a colonnade; the free-standing bell-tower of the procathedral, known as El Fadrí, built in the 15th century. The Llotja del Cànem, built during the first half of the 17th century to be used by traders in hempen cloth and ropes, a important activity in the area at the time. Today the building is used by the University for temporary exhibitions. On the northeast edge of the town, at the end of a broad avenue decorated with orange trees, stands the Basílica of Santa Maria del Lledó, a basilica devoted to an image of the Virgin Mary found in 1366 by a farmer when he was ploughing his lands; the original 14th-century chapel was extended to its present Baroque form during the 16th century. Espai d'Art Contemporani de Castelló, Museum for Modern Art Teatre Principal The annual festivities in Castellón are a week of celebrations three weeks before Easter every year called La Magdalena. People come from all over the province and many international bands and groups participate.
The city is notorious for its music festivals, among which we find: early in February the Tanned Tin music festival for alternative music and experimental music, in July the Festival Internacional de Benicàssim, at the beginning of August there is the Arenal Sound and during the middle of that same month, we can find the Rototom Sunsplash Festival, known for its reggae music. The city has the professional basketball team AB Castelló, which plays in LEB Oro, Spanish second basketball division; the local professional football club is CD Castellón. However, despite having a 15,000 seater stadium, the club financial problems and unstable history make it play in semi-pro and amateur regional divisions, not playing in La Liga since the 1990–91 season. On 21 March 2018, Castellón beat the record of seasonal tickets in the fourth-tier division with 12,701, is considered a giant amongst minnows; the presence of Villarreal CF in the adjacent town has created a fierce rivalry for geographical reasons.
The success of Villarreal in the last decades, with a stable presence in La Liga since 2000 and including several European qualifications, is turning more and more supporters to its side. The city is host to futsal club CFS Bisontes Castellón, which under the name Playas de Castellón was one of the best Spanish and European futsal clubs in the late 90s and early 2000s, having won the premier professional futsal league in Spain twice in 2000 and 2001, the UEFA Futsal Cup three consecutive times in 2001, 2002 and 2003. Jaume I University was founded in 1991, in 2014 there were 15,000 students enrolled who share a single campus.
