Saint-Cyprien tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Saint-Cyprien is well known for its marina which, with over 2200 moorings, is the second most important marina on the French Mediterranean coast.  A lot of activity is centred around the marina and also Les Capellans - a man-made stretch of water where you'll find the botanical gardens or 'Le Jardin des Plantes'. 

There's plenty to see and do in Saint-Cyprien including the art museum or 'Musee Francois-Desnoyers' which houses works by the local Saint-Cyprien painter who died in 1972.  He also denoted his private collection of artworks to the museum which includes a Picasso and a Gieizes.

The old town of Saint-Cyprien has its own brand of Catalan charm.  The tree-lined streets date back to the Roman era with the church constructed during the 13th-century.  Agriculture was the main source of income at this time and it wasn't until the 18th-century that Saint-Cyprien established itself as a centre for cod fishing, oil and iron ore extracted from 'le Canigou' - the highest Pyreneen peak that dominates the skyline on a clear day. 

The port and marina wasn't constructed until 1967, so in terms of a tourist destination Saint-Cyprien is still relatively unspoiled.  Saint-Cyprien is a favourite with golfers as it boasts a 27-hole international golf course.  Sport enthusiasts can also indulge in a wide range of activities from scuba and sailing to horse riding and tennis.  You may also want to take advantage of Saint-Cyprien's 6km stretch of fine, sandy beach.
