About Us

+++ Fort Saint Elme is currently closed to the public for an indefinite period +++

In the XNUMXth century, a tower was built on the hill overlooking the bays of Collioure and Port-Vendres.
It is a unique point of view on the Mediterranean;
It is also a surprising Renaissance Arsenal Museum which is aimed at young and old alike.

Built between 1538 and 1552 by Emperor Charles V, the architecture of Fort St Elme prefigures that of Vauban. It has a six-pointed star shape with the tower at its center.
Discover an impressive collection of Renaissance weapons, a unique panorama and a unique look at history.
