Imposing gateway to the old town. Start here on your explorations in Carcassonne. The maps of the town you get at the tourist centres are not helpful. Find the Castillet and walk a little way and you will find the cathedral Saint Jean Baptist, Casa Xanxo, Muse beaux-arts and the Hotel de ville in striking distance from each other. There... More

Le Castillet is a defense tower located in the center of Perpignan, before it is located in the walls of the city (when these walls were, now it does not exists), then it is located when the oldtown finish. It has some rooms with nothing, only the room, but there is a little interesting exposition about the history of the... More

Narrow stairs lead up to several exhibition rooms en route to the top. Most exhibits are contemporary art and there is one room devoted to a replica of a kitchen of the time with what seems to be genuine arfefacts. Stairs are a steep climb but good view from the top.

In the very centre of old Perpignan since it was Perpignan door. Louis XIV tried to get through but his coach was somehow too wide according to what said. Visit inside to see local customs and learn about its famous history

Having been to Perpignan a number of times previously I hadn't realised until I read it before this visit that you could actually go inside and up the tower. Its 2 Euros each to go in and there are a couple of floors with minimal items that weren't of particular interest to us however my rating is for the view... More

Stunning building from the outside, stuck in the middle of all the hustle and bustle of Perpignan Interesting art exhibition and then a long climb up to the top to a great view.

This tour is short but worth it for the view at the top. They could do with adding more information in in different languages.
