    On the advice of the Office of tourism, we did the tour with a guide. A storyteller who takes you into the story. He give his passion, our visit has taken on another dimension and was very informative. The place is just beautiful.

    Nice monument but almost empty, so where are the furniture! To see if you had a small hole but otherwise no more, I was disappointed!

    This building is very beautiful but to visit you must tour to figure things out because the Palace is empty. We had a great guide! Bravo!

    Not sure its the top place in Perpignan to visit, but a really interesting spot. The building is incredible, but there is nothing else to look at.

    Sorry to say this as France is a beautiful country but none of us liked Perpignan. The centre of the city is run-down and dirty. The palace is nothin to write home about compared to all the other castles and cathedrals we have visited in this part of France.

    Nice panorama, guides give tours, impressive church inside. Overall not amazing but good for an hour.
