(40+ reviews on the web)
Outdoor Activity
Força Réal is a rocky peak overlooking the region of Roussillon in Southern France. From the height of 507 metres, it has a view that stretches from the peak of the Canigou to the cape of Port-Vendres. From here, one can see the geographically contrasting valleys of the Agly and the Têt. It has been used historically as a lighthouse, on account of its unique shape and proximity to the ports of Roussillon.The Castle: The Royal FortressFrom the Treaty of Corbeil in 1258, the new rulers of Roussillon (the kings of Aragon and Majorca), built a castle which fell into the defense of the northern border of the region. It completed the line composed of the Château de Salses and Opoul among others. This castle was nicknamed "the Royal Castle", which the Catalans translated as "Força Real".The estate was occupied in 1343 by King Pedro IV of Aragon the Ceremonious, which ended the kingdom of Mallorca. From the beginning of the fifteenth century the castle lost its importance. Its mission was to serve as lookout, the last mission before the Treaty of the Pyrenees dismantled it permanently.

  • From the Hermitage where since the pylon, you get clear weather, a panorama at 360 ° on the Department. So you can admire the plain and its foothills, the massifs of the Albères, the Vallespir, Canigou, conflent, Ariège, the Madres and Corbières. You have the choice, by the road, mountain bike, walk for a nice hike from the river or Montner Jonos and for those who have difficulties or shortly from the parking lot of the Coll del Bou. Don't forget to browse the botanical trail which is part of the site.

  • I recommend this digestive market with an impressive panorama that goes from Cape Bear in snowy Canigou.
