Palais des rois de Majorque

A medieval Palace in a modern Citadel

Located in the heart of Perpignan, this medieval palace was for nearly a century the center of the ephemeral realm of Mallorca.

 

Completed after 1300 in the Gothic style, its construction reminds the status of Perpignan as economic, political and cultural center of the medieval Mediterranean.
From the 16th century, the French and Spanish engineers surround it with walls to transform it into a citadel. Nowadays, guided tours, concerts and cultural events take place in its garden and rooms.

Château royal de Collioure

The summer residence of the catalan kings

Built at the beginning of the Middle Ages to protect the village of Collioure and its natural harbor, the castle first hosted its feudal lords before the Catalan kings made a stopover during their travels overseas. .


The fortress, which has been reworked many times, has seen the Franco-Spanish struggles for the frontier and, closer to us, the dark episodes of the twentieth century that saw its barracks serve as a prison.
Today, guided tours, concerts and cultural events take place in his courtyard and rooms.
