very interesting! A lot of steps!

A Castle which is being renovated. It is very interesting. A lot of steps inside, so it is not for everyone. Great views from it. Worth a visit.

It's worth the views to pay the 2 Euros. When we visited they had two art exhibitions of which one was somewhat interesting.

We had a wonderful time exploring this castle. The rooms are empty of medieval paraphernalia yet a number of the rooms held art exhibits. One of the painting exhibits we saw was particularly interesting and we had the added pleasure of meeting the artist. There are many fun places to stroll in this castle and some of the highlights occurred... More

The castle has a very interesting history - you are given a guide card on entry so can walk around and understand which parts date from which stage of building. It was great to be able to walk around the main hall building, which is used as an exhibition space, as is the chapel. There are great views of Collioure... More

Quite nice to visit whilst having a stay in Collioure. It was a cold day when we decided to visit the buildings of the town.

This is a nice middle age fortress, with beautiful sea view. There are small, tortuous casemates and big towers.

Visited Collioure in early December. The fort had a Christmas fair with many shops, food, and activities for kids. It was crowed which made it hard to enjoy the fort for its historical value. Also walked around the beach, light house, and surrounding villa. Totally worth it. Plan on 3-4 hours to fully enjoy it.

We got in free one weekend, not sure why. We didn't get a map, so it was little bit hard to navigate where to go. There are lot's of dead ends that you walk up and then you have to come down the same path. There are no furniture inside the rooms, so they are empty but still in a... More

We got in for free due to a festival. There is a stack of history in the building and it dominates the town. Worth a trip but not sure what the normal entry charge would be.
