CHATEAU ROYAL DE COLLIOURE
"Le Château Royal " is on the water's edge and is well-located in the middle of the town. Its history, beauty and imposing appearance make it one of the highlights of Collioure, and it was classed as a historic monument in 1922. The first fortified settlement here was a Roman castrum . In order to make the most of your visit, come on one of our guided tours to learn more about the château. There are frequent shows and exhibitions throughout the year, as well as numerous special events - in particular, the Cour de Noël (Christmas stalls in the château). A bit of history... The château is located atop a 30m-high rocky outcrop, which is now completely covered by the building. It is located on the site of a former Iberian citadel - a fishing port dating from the 6th century BC. A series of kings from different kingdoms lived in the château from the 12th century. The Château Royal is a key part of the town's defences, with both the commercial port and stronghold located within the château walls. The château was built in three main phases. In the 13th century, the château was entirely rebuilt by the kings of Majorca to become their summer residence. In the 14th century, the kings of Aragon reorganised the defences to make the château a military fortress. In the 17th century, Vauban raised the outer wall, destroyed the village in the ramparts and constructed the glacis (artificial slope used to strengthen the walls). In 1939, the château became a prison. For more information on the château and upcoming events, go to the page on Château Royal de Collioure.

The Chapel of Saint Vincent

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.
