Perpignan : Michelin's recommendations
This is the capital of the Roussillon, part of Catalonia annexed by Louis XIII in 1641, and owes its economic expansion to the export of fruit and vegetables. It makes the most of its Catalan nature. You just need to see the people of Perpignan in summer, dancing the sardana to the sound of a cobla on Place de la Loge to be convinced. Of its royal past, it has preserved the fine palace of the kings of Majorca and its museum displaying Catalan artists such as Hyacinthe Rigaud and Maillol.
