  • A beautiful building but didn't enter you would be disappointed that there are empty rooms under renovation.

  • Nice from outside, but nothing at all, poor explanations, empty rooms once the parts are empty it's not alarming but at least explanations or offer the guided tour! Really disappointed...

  • Very imposing upon arriving at Collioure, this place must be visited, a huge restoration work done to enjoy a view of the Bay is missing may be domestic arrangements, but the volume is imposing very nice visit

  • Beautiful little town. Great market on a Sunday. Wonderful shops to browse. Excellent restaurants on the harbour/beach front
  • 4 euro or adult..well worth the trip in..guide & map is very limited, need to work on it.. loads of nooks & cranny.. tunnels & great for kids..an hour will get it done..
  • Nice castle, be sure to do the walk around the base near the ocean. Very invigorating.
  • A great place to visit with children. Make sure to walk the underground passages.
  • Very enjoyable to walk around. Beautiful views. Interesting history of the Mallorcan kings. Inexpensive.
