“Fantastic place to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Very picturesque port and beautiful scenery. Loved the historic buildings and beaches nearby. Great restaurants and plenty of places to eat out. The market on Wednesday is well worth a visit. Highly recommend this place in the South of France. .

“Fort Saint Elme by day and night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The walk up there is envigorating, the view from the top is great, the Castle itself very interesting, but the view from Fort Saint Elme by night is exhilarating!

“Amazing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Take the little train or go by car unless you want a gruelling hike up to the fort. It's worth it, though. The views are amazing and inside the fort there is a fine display of military information

“Stop over the sea side on the way from BC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Three hours by the local train from Barcelona, it is a nice spot to stop over one night and relax, eat, or walk in and around the historic place. Both Spanish and French culture, and compact. Do not forget to walk up to a catsle where you have a splendid scine of Collioure.

“Great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

This castle sits at the top of a Hill, but is well Worth the walk from the bottom of the hill. Great place to watch the fire works in the town below
