Nice and quick spot to stop off at. There are lots of shops and restaurants around. It is riverside and in the winter there is like a winter festival going around all around. The decorate each of the bridges that go across the river.

A Prison Fortress in the Historic Center....
Jun 2019 • Couples
On our first ever visit to France and Perpignan we stayed at a hotel right next to the Historic Center of this city. The Castillet is the anchor piece for the historic center of Perpignan.

It is a well preserved fortress that was used as a prison. It is very well preserved as a museum and there was plenty to see inside with its displays and artifacts. Plus the view from the rooftop was fantastic. There are 142 steps to the top...A number I correctly counted on the way down...

The Castillet was a nice piece of well preserved history and is definitely worth a visit when in Perpignan.

Nice view from the top, affordable, not a whole lot to see but nice

A nice visit to spend a small hour or so, and get probably the best view over Perpignan in the city (if your not afraid of heights).
Not a whole lot to see in the museum but many chambers and rooms make for a fun visit with the kids. Make sure you don’t mind climbing medieval style spiral stairs...

Nice building, very famous in Perpignan. For a good view of the Castillet, you can also go to the rooftop of Galeries Lafayettes (just in front), if it is still open.

Excellent views from the top

When we visited it was free, not sure if it was because it was a Sunday. Lots of levels and stairs to climb but worth it. It is also a museum butchered is no English translation, so if you don’t speak Spanish or French you struggle to understand.
Really good view of Perpignan from the top.
Worth a visit for a couple of hours.

Beautiful fortification and the city gates. From the bridge there is a stunning view on to the Castillet. You must see.
