Photographer's Note

There are no guided visits of the castle. We wander around, on our own, discovering the different rooms still standing, some of them in ruins and therefore dangerous to visit. It seems almost as if the castle was completely abandoned, which is not really the case. The profusion of coloured stones on the arches serving as frames to the windows and doors, are striking.

We come to the upper part of the fortress, where the view over the valley is breathtaking. We have a point of view that reaches almost until the coast, Cadaquès and Cape Creus.

As we let our eyes be enlightened by the surrounding view, we can’t help thinking about those who inhabited this region hundreds of years ago. So many prehistoric vestiges in this valley, menhirs, dolmens, drawings…

The cold and the wind can’t be felt no more. Our thoughts have taken us already very far from the time space where we’re standing.
