King James II of Majorca built this magnificent Gothic fortress-palace in the 13th century. Organised around three courtyards, the palace is famous for:

  • Its two lavish chapels – the Queen’s Chapel and the Holy Cross Chapel
  • The Great Hall
  • The varied stonework of the doors, corridors, stairs, armatures and the main towers
  • The wonderful views of Perpignan from the castle
  • The concerts that are held in the courtyards in the summer

The palace is also famed for the lavish gardens – the Jardin des Rempart – at its feet. It has lovely specimens of blue palm, bald cypress and water lilies. There are benches here, and they make for an excellent place to relax.

  • I like how empty and spacious the castle remains. Feels zen. Great views over the town too

  • Not sure its the top place in Perpignan to visit, but a really interesting spot. The building is incredible, but there is nothing else to look at.

  • Sorry to say this as France is a beautiful country but none of us liked Perpignan. The centre of the city is run-down and dirty. The palace is nothin to write home about compared to all the other castles and cathedrals we have visited in this part of France.

  • Must be visited if you are around Perpignan. There are beautiful views and it is nice to see how well conserved the castle is.

  • It is a waste of time. The palace did not have any decor not furniture it is just an old ruin.
