  • By pass this village amount at Font-Romeu, we decide to make a stop to visit. Great idea, the detour is essential to take advantage of its narrow streets still deserted by tourists, the beauty of the city walls and as a bonus, the passage of the famous yellow train. Our next visit will be an opportunity to climb to Fort Libéria, time missed us this time.

  • Fan of Vauban we n were not disappointed by his trademark. Very beautiful place. Our daughter 3 years and a half loved and worked throughout the visit fascinated by Knights and princes of his imagination. Visit to do!

  • Gorgeous little walled village with high walls all around it - you can't miss it if driving along the N116. Parking along the main road was free on Sunday and there is also lots of parking on the western and eastern side of the village outside the walls. Toilets on both sides seem to be out of order though! The village was very quiet on a Sunday afternoon in December but it was still lovely to walk through it and go up to the train station. The dramatic landscape of mountains beyond the walls adds to the charm. I do imagine it could be a tourist hotspot in busier times of the year though seeing the closed souvenir shops and hotels.
  • Great fortress & example of period defensive walls, but the town is a bit delapiddate. Do stop and wander though. Free parking outside the walls and they allow overnight camping cars.
  • While you won't learn a great deal about the history of Vauban (unless you speak Catalan or French) or Villefranche (even if you do) the circuit of the walls is a great warren of a place through which you can wander letting your imagination fill in the gaps. At €4.50 an adult it's pretty good value, and our daughter loved it.
  • Superb location, impressive site. Well worth a visit.
