It is located on the site of the first Iberian city dating from the 6th century BC and testifying to the presence of a fishing port. From the 12th century, the castle was occupied in turn by different kings from different kingdoms. The Royal Castle was a centerpiece of the city's defensive system, a commercial port and a fortified town in fact unite in the walls of this castle. There will be three main phases of construction. The castle was completely rebuilt by the kings of Majorca in the 13th century to become their summer residence. In the 14th century, the kings of Aragon reorganized the fortifications to make them a military fortification.

The Chapel of Saint Vincent
Built in 1701 on a schist rock, the Chapel of Saint Vincent sits at the edge of the cove of Collioure. According to legend, this is the rock where Saint Vincent was martyred.
On May 16, 1905 Matisse arrived at Collioure, he got off the train and put his luggage, his cartons, his colors in the only inn in the village, avenue de la gare at Dame Rosette's. Matisse goes to discover this village, nestled between sea and mountains and thinks of his friend Paul Signac came in 1888 and painted several paintings. Collioure is at first sight a mountain of vineyards worked on stairs, dry stone walls, dotted with olive and fig trees. Collioure is a village nestled between bell tower and castle, prayers and fighting, it is the fruit of a millennial history. It is an intimate connection between the sea and the land, a powerful embrace that has cut rocks into creeks, inlets where the color mounts and sways on the wood of Catalan boats. It is this first look that becomes founder. Matisse gradually abandons pointillism for his emotion. Faced with this creative potential, he invites André Derain to join him. For this northern man, Collioure is a bright shock. The two painters share a complicity and are in search of a new pictorial world.Together, they indulge in their pictorial presentiments. The artists confront Collioure and work intensively in the open air, traversing the village to catch all the variations, to be closer to the emotion. Derain writes to his friend painter Maurice de Vlaminck: "Fauvism was for us the test of fire ... colors became cartridges of dynamite, they had to discharge light" Discover these reproductions in the city center: - Henri Matisse, Collioure, 1905 - André Derain, The Faubourg Collioure - Henri Matisse, Boats at Collioure, 1905 - André Derain, The lighthouse of Collioure, 1905 - Henri Matisse, Collioure, 1905 - Collioure fishing boats, 1905 - Henri Matisse, The Moulade, 1905 - The roofs of Collioure, 1905 - Collioure, the village and the sea, 1905 You have the opportunity to participate in guided walks.
