History & architecture
The Palace may be the most obvious historical site to visit, but Perpignan is full of other historical and architectural gems. Another iconic and ancient piece of architecture in the city centre is the striking red-brick ‘castillet’ building. Now containing a museum, this tower structure consists of an ancient fortification and part of the ancient city door. For a moment of calm, take a wander around the Cathédrale Saint-Jean, which boasts some very impressive stained glass windows. Another must-visit site is the Campo Santo, the oldest and largest surviving medieval cemetery still surviving in France.
