Perpignan, city of a thousand cultures
It is time for you to discover Perpignan with OUIBUS! Immerse yourself in this fascinating city. This is where Catalonia meets the Mediterranean: it’s a marriage made in heaven.
Did you know that Perpignan used to be the capital of Majorca? Don’t miss the palace of the Kings of Majorca where you can discover the city’s glorious past. The Saint-Jean-Baptiste Cathedral was also built around the same time and has an interesting belfry. At the Loge de Mer, you can see the Catalan influences that also characterise the city. To find out more, head over to the Musée Catalan des Arts et Traditions Populaires (also known as Casa Pairal) at the Castillet.
Make the most of the good weather by taking a walk in one of Perpignan’s many parks: the exotic garden of the Digue d’Orry, the Maillol Park or the Bir Hakeim square are just some of the city’s green spaces. If you’re feeling hungry, discover the region’s culinary specialities: try the ouillade (made with meat), the escaliva (a vegetable dish) or, if it appeals, try some carogolade (a delicacy made with snails) which will enchant your palate! For those with a sweet tooth, local specialities include the rousquille or the crème catalane.
In the evening, relax with a drink at Ascot, a piano-bar or Fabrik, a wine and tapas bar, where you can relax before you hit the clubs.
When you’re ready to leave Perpignan, let OUIBUS take you home!
