There are also sculptures, ceramics and contemporary works by Degas and Nicolas de Staël (1914-1955).

Palais des Rois de Majorque:

At the top of the town, the Spanish citadel encloses the Palace of the Kings of Majorca. A structure from the 13th and 14th centuries, built around a court encircled by arcades, it has been restored by the government.

You can see the old throne room with its large fireplaces and a square tower with a double gallery; from the tower there's a fine view of the Pyrénées.
