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

Been her numerous times as it's central location & huge appearance makes it easy to find & meet up with people... The food is decent although it's a regular burger & chips menu. Bar prices are sky high, probably the highest in the area & they increase by 1 Euro on Fri/Sat although I think this was due to the... 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.

The exhibitions were not what was advertised. It is supposed to be a museum of local life but that was not the case. What little was there was not interesting.

Before you could visit Castillet I always thought it rather extrordinary stuck in a busy shopping street with traffic buzzing by. Interesting to visit and an important part of Perp's history.
