The Saint-Elme Fort, 7km away

The Saint Elme Fort overlooks Collioure and Port-Vendres, 7km away from the Hotel Centre Plage 

Today the Saint Elme Fort is a place of culture dedicated to the Middle Age and the Renaissance.
History and panoramas will offer you a privileged moment. 
It has been built with a star-shape by Charles Quint between 1538 and 1552 around a tower from the 9th century. 

Transformed during the 17th century by Vauban, it has been a hot-bed of the war between French and Spanish until the Revolution. 

The Saint-Elme Fort is accessible walking from Collioure or with a car from Port-Vendres.
