Languedoc Roussillon with Perpignan
Perpignan, is the lively Catalan capital of Roussillon, with lots to see and do. Salvador Dali, called its station the center of the universe.

The 12-14th century Palace of the Kings of Majorca "Le Palais des Rois de Majorque" dominates the city, and often hosts concerts in its gardens. The outstanding French gothic cathedral of St. Jean, which is beautiful to see in and out, and best visited during Easter - where the Procession de la Sanch (Christ's Blood) a 500 year old Catalan tradition is impressive and haunting. Handsome houses and broad squares surround the church (that also boasts the only cemetery cloister in France). Also visit Le Castillet-Casa Pairal with its wonderful folk museum, with panoramic views from its roof terrace from Mediterranean sea to Canigou and the Pyrenees.
Other places to visit include Jardin de Sant-Vicens - a delightful garden, with exotic flowers; there are concerts, and exhibitions of textiles and crafts; Maison Quinta - a place to buy those household items that you just wish to have!; Chocalaterie Cantalou, home to everything chocolate from history to degustation.
Perpignan has numerous concerts, and over the summer July and August on Thursday evenings concerts, musicians, street artists fill the streets. For those seeking a music festival atmosphere nearby Leucate Plage has the Festival de Meditarraneennes (Aug 6,7,8)
In the beginning of September (AUG 27 - SEPT 16) 2011 Perpignan plays hosts to the worlds largest International Photojournalism Festival in Perpignan : Visa - a must see exhibition, festival and trade show of sorts for documentary and journalistic photography and writings, where world wide editors search out the best. This is an event that just should not be missed. The exhibitions are shown in the numerous historic buildings of Perpignan - some specially opened for the occasion. Its a huge event - well worth seeing!
THE SURROUNDING AREA
Perpignan is the perfect base to discover Languedoc Roussillon. 15 minutes away are the seemingly endless sandy beaches from Canet Plage to Argeles-sur-Mer.
Further south is the art mecca of Collioure where Picasso, Matisse, and the Fauvists discovered color that made their world renowned. Collioure surrounded by the peaks of the Pyrenees, chock full of castles, and vineyards clinging to steep hill sides.
Then further inland there is Ceret, with more art, with a fine modern art museum, and a colorful market on Saturdays. Or go to Villfranche-sur-conflent, where you can take the Little Yellow train and marvel at deep valleys, and yet more castles, and mountain villages. If its snow and skiing its all there too - with Font Romeu. Inland there are pretty churches, and medieval abbeys with magical cloisters at Serrabone Priory and Abbey of St Michel de Cuxa, under the mountain peak of Canigou.
Here wine is king, great red resilient wines from the Corbieres, where Cathar castles like Queribus sit atop the mountain peaks, and deep canyons with running streams rivers tempt young adventurers.
