This former defensive site was built in terraces in the garrigue between the Conflent valley and Mont Canigou and had to repel the French in the 16C and the Spanish army in the 18C. Today, the imposing Church of Saint Vincent stands in place of the old citadel and steep cobblestone streets descend from its doors.
