Sightseeing suggestions

Located in the deep south of France, "Perpinyà," as they say in Catalan, is the capital of the Pyrénées Orientales.

It's a border city, situated in an astonishing environment with one side on the Mediterranean coast and on the other side the highest mountains in the French Pyrenees.

Believe for many years to be the highest mountain in the Pyrenees at 2784 meters, the Canigou Mountain has become the sacred mountain of Catalan Country (the highest mountain is the Vignemale mountain, 3298 meters, located in the central part of Pyrénées mountains).

Perpignan is a busy place, at the crossroads of two countries, greatly influenced by the Mediterranean cultures and benefiting from 2500 hours of sun per year. No wonder that Salvador Dali saw it as the "Centre of the World"!

Perpignan is also a modern and vibrant city, a great destination warmly welcoming international visitors.

Some of the main places to visit in Perpignan:

  • Le Palais des rois de Majorque
  • La Cathédrale St Jean-Baptiste
  • Le Musée Hyacinthe Rigaud
  • La Loge de Mer
  • Le Castillet, Musée d'arts et traditions populaires catalanes

Around Perpignan:

If you have time, the countryside has many interesting spots and villages worth a visit, such as Elne and its 2,700-year-old citadel, Rivesaltes, renowned for its vineyards, or Thuir which is the capital of the famous aperitif Byrrh: Byrrh caves with the largest oak vat in the world attract thousands of visitors each year.

At 30 km from Perpignan, don't miss Collioure, an idyllic place on the rocky coastline, nestling in an unspoilt, protected environment. The small Catalan port is sheltered by a creek where the waters of the Mediterranean meet the rocks of the Pyrenees mountains chain.
