In Lleida, on September 8, 1251, Jaime I the Conqueror issued a document authorizing Ximén Pérez de Arenós, his lieutenant in the kingdom of Valencia, to move the town of Castelló from its original location to the place on the plain whichever you find more appropriate. Traditional memory places the move on the third Sunday of Lent the following year. This fact is commemorated annually, since 1945, during the founding festivities by holding a pilgrimage to the hermitage of La Magdalena on the third Sunday of Lent.

As a sign of the royal drive for economic development, on March 16, 1260 Jaime I authorized the construction of a road to link the town with the sea, giving rise to what we now know as El Grau.

The son and successor of Jaime I, Pedro III el Grande, from Barcelona, ​​on February 7, 1284, granted the town of Castelló the power to self-govern by granting the right to have its own municipal bodies. Since the 14th century, Castelló assumed the seat of the government of the region that covered from the river Uxó to the Sènia, and with it a role of capital that has not abandoned it over several centuries.

The pride of belonging to our locality is found in the idiosyncrasy of Castellón society, which is exhibited in each celebration of our festivities with the memory of that initial transfer that led to the genesis of the place that we know today as our home, a pleasant place to shores of the Mediterranean that the sun comes to illuminate an average of 300 days a year.
