Suggestions for car trip south from Barcelona needed.

Next March we are travelling by car from Barcelona south to Grenanda over 9 days. We have not a clue what to do or where to stop.

We do not care for beaches, and it is the wrong time of year anyway.

We like out of the way places with historical interest, not much for churches or cathedrals (will see plenty in Barcelona).

Suggestions welcomed for places of interest, off beat ideas, weird out of big city places to stay, etc...

Peñiscola has a big castle that was used to film El Cid, and is very interesting.

Valencia has many sights and I would spend 3 days there. The aquarium at the City of Arts and Sciences is the best in Spain. I have seen it 3 times already and enjoyed myself there.

Elche is worth a stop to see the Palm Grove.

Nearby Cartagena is very nice to visit.

Near Almeria City is Cabo de Gata, a large environmentally protected area. You can stay at Roquetas de Mar.

Read Buying Alhambra Tickets Online and BOOK EARLY.

Have a great trip!
