What's Perpignan Like?

Overlooking the southern part of Perpignan's old town, the Palais des Rois de Majorque is a stylish medieval palace with a few Spanish and Moorish flourishes enclosed by Vauban's more robust 17th century fortifications. Down in the medieval quarter, the 14th century cathedral is notable for its ornate altarpieces and a wooden crucifix from the 1400s. Le Castillet is a 14th century gateway tower that now houses a museum devoted to Roussillon's Catalan history and culture, offering an interesting introduction to the region. Place de la Loge is at the heart of the old town and provides elegant cafes and brasseries offering a break from the sightseeing. To the south of the center, Perpignan's Arab-Romany quarter is an atmospheric area of narrow streets and small squares with ethnic cafes, bakeries and a bustling daily market in Place Joseph Cassanyes. Perpignan hotels provide an ideal base for exploring this fascinating city.
