At the southern end of the old city, the massive Spanish citadel encloses the now restored former Palace of the Kings of Majorca. Built in the 13th and 14th centuries around a 2-story courtyard encircled by arcades, this is Perpignan’s most famous building. Entering via a huge ramp wide enough to take several horsemen side by side, you walk into a park with the castle ahead. From the courtyard you climb to the first-floor king’s and queen’s apartments. The square tower with its double gallery gives panoramic views of the Pyrénées. A free guided tour, in French only, departs at 11am and 3pm.
