The Catalonian City of Perpignan, tradition and modernity!

With its southern feel and spicy accent, Perpignan faces Spain and the East, with an eye on the past and a smile for the future...

Plane trees and palm trees coexist along wide avenues flooded with sunlight. Their shadow makes Maillol’s beauties dance, naked and proud in a courtyard or a little square where a marble fountain sings.

The majestic grandeur of the Kings of Majorca dominates the busy streets full of spices, fruit and fish, and a thousand exotic flavours and aromas...

Perpignan, the Capital of Pyrénées Orientales, is also, without a doubt, the capital of French Catalonia!
