Peralada Castle

Peralada Castle is a large, complex artistic construction built in the 14th Century by the Viscounts of Rocabertí after the first fort located at the highest point of the original town centre, Castro Tolon, was destroyed in 1285 during the crusade against Catalonia under the command of the French King Phillip the Bold. The Castle was the main residence of the Rocabertí family until the 19th Century, when they moved to Paris.
