What Perpignan has to offer?
Summer all year round!
But that’s not all! This border, along the ancient Via Domitia linking the Stratis of Gibraltar to the Italian Peninsula, is also a land of mixed cultures, nurtured by the Catalans Roussillonnais, Spaniards and gypsies who have chosen to settle here.
A city of art and history, Perpignan’s Gothic architecture is reflected in its many monuments, including the Campo Santo. Thanks to its role as the former mainland capital of the Kingdom of Majorca, Perpignan has a rich heritage, including the Palais des Corts, the Loge des Marchands and the Hôtel de Ville.
Celebrations and Traditions
The city hosts a number of major events throughout the year. St John’s Day and Holy Week are the most popular festivals in Perpignan. For photography lovers amongst you, don't forget to enter the Visa pour l’image competition.
