The summer residence of the catalan kings
Built at the beginning of the Middle Ages to protect the village of Collioure and its natural harbor, the castle first hosted its feudal lords before the Catalan kings made a stopover during their travels overseas. .
The fortress, which has been reworked many times, has seen the Franco-Spanish struggles for the frontier and, closer to us, the dark episodes of the twentieth century that saw its barracks serve as a prison.
Today, guided tours, concerts and cultural events take place in his courtyard and rooms.
