Beautiful.

This is a wonderful little Castle right on the edge of the old town of perpignan. Worth taking a look.

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.

Lovely setting and nice and cool on a hot day. We visited an art exhibition inside for only 2euros each. And nice little cafes right by!

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

Although some reviews sound disappointing my girlfriend and I enjoyed our visit probably because we didn't have to pay haha. The exhibits were not that interesting and my girlfriend not a fan of spiral stairs and that's all it is but the view from the top was well worth the climb.

This is a very interesting monument kept in incredible condition. The view from the top is lovely- the city and then the snow-capped mountains in the distance. There is a brief historical guide available in English if you ask for it (Puis j'avoir une guide en Anglais? Or est-ce qu'il y a une guide en Anglais? ) otherwise, yes, the... More

As previously stated the exhibition where not the ones listed and really had nothing to do with local life as I was lead to believe What was there was of no real interest at all. Better places to visit.
