The Sailor’s Museum
The Sailor’s Museum is located in the old town lighthouse, and The Benicarló Sailor’s Museum is located in the old lighthouse, and aims to make people aware of seafarers as a cultural asset and to give the value deserved to the different professions and seafaring tradition.

There are different exhibition areas inside the Sailor’s Museum which focus on: the maritime history of Benicarló, the history of the lighthouse, old siling equipment, marketing fish, different types of fish, fish which is marketed in Benicarló, traditional trades and professions involved with the sea (net repairers, caulkers, merchant marines and fishermen), the current fishing industry and gastronomy.
