Overview

South of France, in reach of Spain

Perpignan, between Spain and France, it’s a whole culture!

In 1963, Salvador Dali declared that the railway station of Perpignan was indeed the centre of the whole universe. Is it real or not, nobody knows. Yet one thing is for sure: Perpignan, capital of the Pyrénées Orientales department, is definitely a pleasurable city.

About France

Perpignan used to belong to the counts of Barcelona and became french only after the Thirty Years’ War in 1659. Thus, you should not be surprised to find there a pretty interesting mixture of catalan and french cultures.

Wonders like the cathedral of Saint John the Baptist or the Palace of the Kings of Majorca, as well as many places and ballads along the river Basse are not to be missed.
Together with tasty wines from the Roussillon area, you might also enjoy the traditionnal boles de picolat (delicious catalan meatballs served with beans).

In Perpignan and around, you will find all you were looking for!
