HIGHLIGHTS

 

The Castellet

Perpignan's landmark, Le Castellet, is the ancient main gate along the city walls, built in 1368 by master builder Guillem Guitard.

Today, this building houses the Catalan Museum of Popular Art and Traditions.

Palais des Rois de Majorque

Located in the heart of the city, this majestic Gothic palace is one of the most important monuments in the Roussillon region.

Home to the Kings of Majorca, it houses both a lower and upper chapel inside its tower and has three charming inner courtyards. Discover its interesting combination of Romanesque and Gothic style.

Saint John the Baptist Cathedral

Construction of the Cathedral Basilica of Saint John the Baptist of Perpignan began in 1324. It drew on the southern French Gothic style and was originally envisioned as a three-nave church.

The church later became a cathedral in 1601, consisting of a single nave of great breadth, several vaults in Gothic style and Neo-Gothic stained glass. It is a key religious temple in the history of Perpignan.
