Collioure, town of painters

Enjoying the town

Art in general and painting in particular can be found all over Collioure, from the permanent exhibitions at the Château Royal to the art galleries tucked away in the streets of the town centre. A tradition that came into being at the beginning of the last century with the founders of Fauvism https://www.collioure.com/decouvrir/les-incontournables/le-fauvisme (Matisse, Derain, Terrus, Maillol…), who all loved Collioure and its light and Mediterranean colours.

Collioure’s cultural highlights

Château Royal, Fort Saint Elme…

A commercial port at the centre of Mediterranean trade, Collioure takes pride in its abundant heritage. The Château Royal (https://www.collioure.com/a-voir-a-faire/activites-culturelles), former holiday destination for the kings of Spain, dominates the town and is the venue for cultural events throughout the year. Perched above the town, Fort Saint Elme (built by Vauban) also houses a Renaissance museum.
