Le Castillet & Casa Païral information
Like many medieval towns, Perpignan was once encircled by defensive walls. Today all that remains is the red-brick town gate of Le Castillet , at the northern end of the old town. Inside the gateway is the Casa Païral museum , displaying Catalan ephemera from traditional bonnets and lace mantillas to an entire 17th-century kitchen.
