Don’t be put off by the shirt sharp climb because the view of the Gruissan circulade, surrounding sea and salt water étangs is spectacular! And it’s free - don’t miss it!

This is a great place to visit while exploring Gruissan. It's free and doesn't take long - but there is a nice view from the top. Try the path around it about half way up too.

A very short walk through the winding narrow streets, to the pathway that leads up to the ruins. A few minutes climbing the old steps, brings you to the top with a fantastic view of the city, the Mediterranean, and the marina.

Lovely climb. Stunning view. The whole town is built around the centrally located tour. Clean and free. A fascinating look back into history
