Les Pyrénées-Orientales (66)

An unspoilt, authentic destination

A region with a lot to offer. 214 km of coast boasting fine sandy beaches and rocky coastline at the foot to 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.

Collioure’s cultural highlights

Château Royal, Fort Saint Elme…

A thriving port at the heart of Mediterranean trade, Collioure boasts a rich heritage. The Château Royal, the former some-time residence of the Spanish kings, overlooks the town and hosts cultural events throughout the year. Perched above the town, Fort Saint Elme (built by Vauban) also houses a Renaissance museum.

Art and painting

Collioure, a town defined by Fauvism

Art in general and painting in particular can be found all over Collioure, from the permanent exhibitions at the Château Royal to the art galleries tucked away in the streets of the town centre or on the waterfront. A tradition that came into being at the beginning of the last century with the founders of Fauvism (Matisse, Derain, Terrus, Maillol…), who all loved Collioure and its light and Mediterranean colours.

Walks and hikes

Explore the coastline

Make the most of the region’s unspoilt natural environment and outstanding views over the Mediterranean, the rocky coast, inlets and Pyrenean foothills by enjoying one of the many walks that start in Collioure: the chemin des douaniers (customs officers’ trail), the coastal path etc.

Enjoying the town

Experiencing the rhythm of the town means enjoying traditional markets, wine-tasting at a wine cellar, wandering around the port and soaking up all of Collioure’s characteristic colours and aromas. As night falls, lamps light up the dusky town, creating the perfect atmosphere for a wander through its paved streets. For a weekend break or for a longer stay, there’s lots to explore and enjoy in Collioure and the surrounding area...
