Bibendum
To enjoy a stunning view of the whole of the region, go up the Tour Madeloc (652m) from where there is a lovely view of the Albères, the Vermeille and Roussillon coasts. Another vantage point is Cap Réderis with its sweeping view of the coastline. You will enjoy stopping off at Banyuls, a delightful seaside resort on the edge of a pretty bay and Cerbère, a tiny seaside village with a distinctly Spanish flavour. Port-Vendres is set in a cove which offered excellent shelter for galleys in ancient times; the town was developed and fortified under Vauban and is now a busy fishing port. Collioure is a delight. Numerous painters attracted by the bright colours of this town have immortalised it on canvas, and as early as 1910 the first of the "Fauves" made it their headquarters - Derain, Braque, Othon, Matisse, etc. Take the time to wander round the old streets, admire the royal castle and savour the atmosphere of its two fishing harbours.

    Pros

    Collioure, PortVendres, Banyuls, trois pierres précieuses dans cet écrin qu'est la cote vermeille. Mention spéciale à Collioure pour son site, le fort, l'église sur la pointe dont le nom m'échappe et qui renferme un de ces autels catalans monumentaux qui vont du sol à la voute couverts de dorures et de sculptures. Exceptionnel. Banyuls a un peu moins de personalité, mais la ville produit des vins doux naturels exceptionnels, à consomer avec modération, évidement.

    Cons

    Le stationement est un peu difficile à Collioure, alors n'hésitez pas à vous garer au-dessus du fort, dix minutes à pied du centre ville, visitez la ville et terminez devant une paella dans un des trés nombreux restaurants qui bordent les quais, miam !
