Walking Tours: ‘Collioure – Pearl Of the Vermillion Coast’ In Southern France

The pearl of the Vermillion Coast, the little town of Collioure, prized by painters, makes an incredibly picturesque, enchanting scene…It is a picture postcard place, with its royal castle by the sea, its port with local boats, its small pebbly beaches, the old town with its coloured façades and its emblematic pink-domed bell-tower!

Collioure is a town on the Mediterranean coast of southern France. On the sea, the medieval Château Royal de Collioure offers dramatic coastal views. The bell tower of 17th-century Notre-Dame-des-Anges Church was once a lighthouse. The Modern Art Museum includes paintings by Henri Matisse. Nearby is the Moulin de Collioure, a 14th-century windmill. South, the hilltop Fort St. Elme has a museum with medieval weapons.
