Due to its excellent location, Collioure has a rich and intense history.
As both a large commercial port and a royal palace, Collioure has experienced moments of great prestige and commercial growth,
and has been the home to various peoples.
However, its strategic, cross-border location has led to numerous conflicts, causing the town to be destroyed multiple times.
Due to its chequered history, Collioure has learnt how to pick itself up after a fall.
