Experience the Pyrénées-Orientales at your own pace


A land where there are not only four seasons but, in addition, a succession of unexpected summers and springs, where the sun reigns supreme (more than 300 days a year) over the valleys carved by three rivers (the Têt, Tech, Agly) but also on an infinity of torrents and streams, fresh or hot springs, on rocky coves, ports and fine sandy beaches but also on high mountains, foothills, hills, canyons, fragrant and game-rich forests ...


A land bathed in such pure air under a sky so limpid that a thousand years have hardly left any wrinkle on the countless castles, fortresses, churches, convents and monasteries ...


A land full of fruits, wines (Banyuls, Maury, Muscat de Rivesaltes, Côtes du Roussillon) and a thousand riches that make life tastier and more colourful than elsewhere ...


This land is the Pyrénées-Orientales department, Catalan Country, a unique, privileged place of contact between the Mediterranean - open to the East, to elsewhere - and the Pyrenees, guardians of the territory and of traditions.


From high mountain plateaus to sunny beaches and coves, from Canigou to the Côte Vermeille, the Pyrénées-Orientales deploy a land bathed in sunshine and truly unspoiled nature from 0 to 3000 meters.


The eleven nature reserves, the Regional Natural Park of the Catalan Pyrenees, the Corbières-Fenouillèdes Regional Natural Park, the Gulf of Lion Marine Natural Park, the first marine reserve in France are all protected areas for an exceptional destination in all seasons.
