A view from the Chateau Royal in Collioure - the centrepiece of this spectacular medieval fishing village. Built on Roman foundations it was the home of the Majorcan Royal family during the 14th and 15th centuries, before being taken over by the Spanish in the 17th century. It was returned to the French, as was the rest of the region and its monuments, in the mid-17th century.
