Pyrenees-Orientales tourist informationwhere to go - what to see - what to do
You'll notice a distinctly Catalan feel to France's southernmost tip most noticeably in the language of the people and the names of towns and villages such as Poltig and Eus.
Once part of Spain, this area has also been occupied by the Romans, Visigoths and Saracens.
The landscape of the Pyrenees-Orientales is diverse - beaches, mountains, vineyards, valleys that climb to the Pyrenees, and flat inland plains.
Leisure possibilities including skiing on the high plateau of the Cerdagne. The scenery here is fabulous with pine forests and glacial lakes adding a magical dimension!
- Coastal Resort of Collioure - a quaint and colourful town, the inspiration to Fauvist painters, Picasso and other artists and travellers since.
- Wine tasting at Banyuls-sur-Mer - visit the 13th-century Cellier des Templiers to sample some of France's finest dessert wine.
- Perpignan - the city comes to life in the summer evenings when locals come to dance sardanas, the national Catalan dance in the Place de la Castillet.
- Modern Art - Ceret is home to the Musee d'art Moderne and its many works by Picasso, Braque, Matisse and others.
