Trip Planner: Europe / France / Occitanie / Pyrenees-Orientales / Perpignan / Castillet
Castillet was formerly the gate of the city and then a prison. Now it's a historic monument where you can explore the Catalan Museum of Arts and Popular Traditions. The building is known for its variation on military architecture, featuring turrets, crowning battlements, and Moorish-style consoles. The structure was built as a strong defensive castle, but over time it also has served as a prison and a public building. Alterations include the addition of statuary and the removal of certain defensive components, such as the drawbridge. However, you can still see the battlements, barred windows, and domed watchtower.

A great looking castle, really colourful and well maintained, as were all the canal lawns and gardens nearby. Loved the Catalan flag flying on the top!

Excellent Movie, We are only 8 persons watched that movie "No time to Die". Good environment, friendly staffs, not expensive.
The cinema Castillet is a great cinema, in the heart of Perpignan city. The cinema continues to showcase a brillant offering of films that may not have the big marketing budget of the more commercial and franchise films. Seats are super comfy and well spaced and staff are friendly.
