Collioure The Essential
Recommended
A fortified church that appears on the verge of toppling into the sea, two little ports (separated by the old royal castle) filled with colourful Catalan-style boats (note the high masts so integral to anchovy fishing), old streets lined by flowered balconies and linked by steps, strolling by the waterfront, café terraces and shops with bright window displays - such are the charms of Collioure, rendered perfect by an almost perpetually blue sky.
