The magnificent Pyrénées-Orientales in Northern Catalonia - where the sea, the mountains and the hinterland all parade their remarkable natural and cultural riches - has very different and diverse areas. Such a beautiful region deserves a high quality guide book… and the only tri-lingual one is totally free and so is truly accessible to all - the Euro-Séjours & Tourisme en Pyrénées Roussillon.
With no less than 11 natural reserves (including one natural marine reserve covering 650 hectares (1,606 acres) of sea between Banyuls-sur-mer and Cerbère) and as many as 23 classified sites, the area offers a wide choice of tourist sites and cultural opportunities in the South of France. The region boasts a very rich historic patrimony including Perpignan's Saint Jean's Cathedral, the World Heritage classified sites of Mont Louis and Villefranche de Conflent… the pride and joy of the Roussillon. There is also natural heritage such as the Canigou, the iconic sacred mountain of the Catalans; the site of Paulilles on the coast; the Bouillouses lake in Cerdagne Capcir; and for lovers of flora and fauna… the Nyer Natural Reserve in the Upper Confluent, where you can safely observe the bat colonies.
There are so many exciting places in the Pyrenees Orientales to visit and to share with others.
