Regarding

The natural site of Racou is undoubtedly the point of convergence of the 5 landscape units of the territory of Argelès-sur-Mer. This site is classified by the municipality and the conservatory of the littoral in order to preserve the picturesque character of this set. An orientation table, located at the water tower ("Moulin d'En Sorra"), presents the 360° panorama. The rocks of Porteils are the first schistose maritime cliffs of the Catalan rocky coast. The coastal path continues on this set towards Collioure. It is being rehabilitated, in order to better preserve the natural units by channeling the public.
