THE CASTILLET AND THE CASA PAIRAL MUSEUM
This building is the emblem of the town and it's the ancient city gate.
The main body, the "Grand Castillet", is built in red bricks and marble from Baixas and it belongs to the Aragonese age. It was built in 1368 and then transformed by Luis XI who added the terrace and the red brick turret crowned by a dome.
The second gate, "la porte Notre Dame", was built in the same period. During XVII and XVIII century the building became a prison.
At present it houses the Museum of the history of Northern Catalonia "Joseph Deloncle" (see the "museums" section of the website).
You have to climb 142 stairs to reach the top of the building.
