A region with a lot to offer. 214 km of coast boasting fine sandy beaches and rocky coastline at the foot of the Pyrenean mountains, exceptional weather, a hinterland rich in heritage sites and landscapes brimming with history all combine to ensure that the Pyrénées-Orientales area offers you the very best of the sea and the mountains, both in summer and in winter.
With its prime location and history as a commercial port, Collioure has an extensive cultural heritage to offer. The Château Royal overlooks the town and hosts exhibitions and events throughout the year. Perched above the town, Fort Saint Elme (built by Vauban) also houses a Renaissance museum.
Art and culture flow through the streets of Collioure. In addition to the modern art museum founded by Jean Peské with its permanent exhibitions, there are many art galleries displaying work by painters and ceramicists.
With the sea, mountains and hinterlands in such close proximity, it is really easy to stay in shape in the Collioure area! Explore the trails on foot or by mountain bike throughout the year, windsurf, paddleboard, kitesurf, jet ski in the summer, dive and enjoy winter sports in the mountains in the winter... Sport is a year-round activity!
