La Cathédrale & Le Cloître La Maternité Suisse Le Musée Terrus La Pomone de Maillol

Photo © Jean-Christophe MILHET

With nearly 27 centuries of history, the ancient city of Illiberis was considered the capital of the Roussillon for a long time. Named Castrum Helenae in the 4th century, it became the episcopal see in 571, illustrating the religious and political importance of the town. Regularly and frequently attacked, some scars from the battle led by Philip the Bold in 1285 – which ended inside the 11th century Cathedral – are still visible today. The Balaguer and Bernat d’Oms Gateways, remain from the original fortifications as a reminder of this troubled period. Abandoned by the Kings of Majorca in favour of Perpignan, it then grew into an important agricultural town. Several 20th century artists, such as Matisse, Derain and Terrus, frequented the town, which is now a proud historical and cultural centre in the region to be visited.

► LOOK AT ‘ Pomone’ a sculpture by Maillol.

La Cathédrale et le Cloître

Photo © Jean-Christophe MILHET

Built on the ruins of a former cathedral, the existing building – dedicated to Saint Julie and Saint Eulalia – is an exceptional example of Romanesque art. The building works undertaken in the 11th century feature some impressive dimensions such as the nave measuring 42m long and 16m high. Attached to the north side of the cathedral is the exceptionally well preserved cloister. Built in white marble with blue veins, between the 12th and the 14th centuries, the sculptures and capitals trace the evolution of art from Romanesque to Gothic.

►  LOOK AT the six Gothic chapels in the cathedral, dating from the 13th – 15th centuries.
►  VISIT the History Museum and the Archeological Museum both situated in the Cloister.

Le Musée Terrus

For over 25 years, Elne has celebrated the wonderful work of Etienne Terrus (1857-1922) and some of his friends. He liked to feature the colours of Catalonia in his unique style of water-colour painting.

► VISIT the temporary exhibitions of contemporary art.

La Maternité Suisse

The permanent exhibition entitled ‘A Cradle of Humanity at the Heart of Inhumanity’ traces the life of Elisabeth Eindenbenz. Having joined the Suisse Aid for Children, she helped some 600 women of all nationalities to give birth in suitable conditions between 1939 and 1944.

Records refer to the village in the 9th century. It belonged in turn to the Counts of Roussillon, the Knights Templar and then the Fontfroide abbey. In the 19th century, the village turned to agriculture as evidenced by the construction of a number of attractive farm houses. The creation of the lake in 1977 proved an immense boost to the village.

►  LOOK AT the 15th or 16th century village church.

Le Lac

Photo © Orvaloris

Since the construction ended in 1977, the lake has been used as a water supply for agriculture as well as providing water for local fire fighters. Situated just a few kilometres from Perpignan, it is also one of the most popular relaxing leisure sites in the area. Restaurants appear each summer along the beach of the smaller lake, to ensure that bathers and other visitors have a good time. On the larger lake, there are a number of sporting activities available such as rowing, kayaking, Catalan rowing boats and fishing. There is also an interesting ecological reserve with many different species of birds who visit to nest.

La Chapelle Saint-Julien et Sainte-Baselisse

Photo © Orvaloris

This chapel, dating back to the 12th century, is situated below the centre of the village and is a typical example of Roussillon Romanesque Art. The building has recently been restored to leave it as a wonderful cultural venue with excellent acoustics.

Le Mystérieux Maître

Le Maître de Cabestany L'Église Notre-Dame-des-Anges Le Centre de Sculpture Romane

Photo © Orvaloris

Cabestany was first mentioned in writings in 927, the name means it was ‘adjacent to a lake’. The medieval village was built around the 11th century Notre Dame des Anges church. This Romanesque building has been renovated many times over the centuries, including the addition of two Gothic chapels. In the 20th century the church was enlarged, work which uncovered the exceptional white marble tympanum sculpted by the Master of Cabestany. This major discovery marked the beginning of research into this artist, whose works have been found as far away as Spain and Italy.

An active town which enjoys the benefit of being close to Perpignan, it has a lively cultural life based around the Jean Ferrat cultural centre. Various sporting activities can be enjoyed in the Germanor Complex. On the outskirts of the village is the Mas Guerido, a large commercial area housing over 250 businesses.

►  WALK along the Saint Camille track and along the footpaths.
►  VISIT The Romanesque Sculpture Centre, devoted to the work of the mysterious Master of Cabestany.

On 16th May 1026 the ‘La Trêve de Dieu(God’s Truce) council was held in the village followed by a synod organised in 1065. Ecumenical Councils were organised by the Catholic church attempting to impose a period of truce amongst the feudal leaders. The 11th century church of Saint Marie can boast a Romanesque sculpted doorway together with two plaques commemorating the Ecumenical Councils. One of the architectural particularities of the village is a republican bell-tower, built just after the French Revolution, facing the church. The El Mil.lenari Cultural Centre has been an important part of cultural life in Toulouges and the surrounding area since 2005.

It can also boast of some well-preserved religious buildings, all constructed in different styles; for example Romanesque for the Rodona church and Gothic for the Saint Étienne church (1665-1774), also known for its façade and Baroque bell-tower. One of the rare Medieval hospitals still left standing in France is the Hospici, which now home to the Centre for Sacred Art with its Romanesque and Baroque works.
