Collioure is ... a tourist attraction on the Côte Vermeille north of the Pyrenees. It belongs to the growing area of the sweet wine Banyuls (VDN). Collioure is an old fishing village with two port bays separated by an old royal castle, bounded by its picturesque fortified church, whose tower used to be a lighthouse.
The Brasserie Hôtel des Templiers on the Quai Amirauté has countless original works of art by artists who settled in Collioure. Even very famous artists such as Henri Matisse, Maurice Utrillo and Pablo Picasso regularly returned to the brasserie, leaving pictures of the landlord instead of paying them - these originals are not open to the public.
