Visit Perpignan as a couple
If you want to combine culture and history, the city centre is the place to be! Some of the unmissable sites to tour with a loved one include the Palace of the Kings of Majorca and the Castillet, wonders of the 13th century, the Gothic style Loge de la Mer which even though it cannot be visited can be admired from the terrace of a café, and the Hyacinthe Rigaud museum which houses works by Picasso and Dufy.
Leave dry land behind for a few hours and embark on a boat cruise, the ultimate in romance! With your hair blowing in the wind and the Mediterranean air filling your lungs, admire the beauty of the coastline in your other half’s arms during your excursion over the water. Full steam ahead for the Mediterranean!

Have you heard about the sardana? This traditional dance from Catalonia bears a close resemblance to the ancient Greek circle dance... But with a Catalan twist!
Garnet, which used to be found in the heart of Mount Canigou, is the sacred stone of the Catalans. Combined with gold, it depicts the colours of Catalonia! A (very) attractive souvenir to bring back home with you.
From the gardens of the Palace of the Kings of Majorca, enjoy a stunning view of the city and Mount Canigou, the other star of the region!
Cheeses, wines, seafood and other sweet and savoury treats: your taste buds will tingle with pleasure in French Catalonia! To be consumed (almost) without moderation!
