This fortress is one of the most important military historical monuments of the city, mainly because its architecture is unique. It was built in the 14th and 15th centuries from pebbles and brick and cement. There are two parts to the building – Grand Castillet and Little Castillet. For a while in the 17th century, both parts were used as a State Prison. Today, the museum is touristically important for two things:

  • The view from the top of the terrace, which you have to climb 142 steps to get to, and
  • Casa Pairal, or the Museum of Arts and Popular Traditions.

The highlights of the museum (which is a succession of small rooms from the first to third floors) are as follows:

  • The flame of St. John
  • A reproduction of The Last Supper
  • Small exhibits on traditional life at home, cooking, religion, entertainment and agriculture.
  • The Museum of History of North Catalonia
