Le Castillet et le musée Casa Pairal

The Castillet, emblem of the city of Perpignan, is the former main gate of the city walls.

The main body of the building, the great Castillet, built in brick and marble from Baixas, dates back to the Aragonese period.

It was built from 1368 onwards and transformed under Louis XI, who added its current terrace and its brick turret crowned with a cupola.

The second gate, the Notre-Dame gate, was built at the same time.

In the 17th and 18th centuries the building was transformed into a prison.

Today it houses the Casa Pairal museum of local history and ethnography.

142 steps must be climbed to reach the top of the monument.
