Perpignan and Collioure are the most picturesque and delightful towns in the South of France. And it seems that they consist only of attractions, most of which you can visit during this tour.
Perpignan is one of the most beautiful cities in France. It has the Palace of Majorcan Kings, which is one of the most beautiful Palace buildings of the XIII century on the Mediterranean coast. You will also see “Small castle” — Le Castillet, which is a symbol of the city. Noteworthy are the Cathedral of St. John of XIV century and the Church of St. Mary, the square Verdun and the historic theatre Loges-de-Mer that was founded in 1397 as a Maritime Tribunal. It will also be interesting to visit the square Arago and stroll in a small, but quite popular, Park of La Miranda. Also, the city is the center of local winemaking.
The town of Collioure is one of the oldest ports on the coast, it was used by the ancient Greeks and Phoenicians. It is also a city of painters. The famous French painter and sculptor, leader of Fauvism – Henri Matisse gave the city a new look, which is jealously preserved by the inhabitants of Collioure today: the reproductions of the artist decorate not only souvenir shops but also the ordinary houses.
A great variety of cafes and restaurants will please any gourmet.
