People always tend to say ‘location’ three times, but in Perpignan it makes sense, you’re located just below the dramatic peaks of the Pyrenees, just a short drive to the west from the Mediterranean, and just a little north of the border with Spain. And from some of the best places to stay in Perpignan you’ll have a view of the first two - not bad!

The proximity with Spain lends a certain extra colour, and a bit of extra interest to the already investing cuisine. Plus Perpignan is really big on fiestas.

Some of our Guru’s recommendations for the best places to stay in Perpignan can be found in the wonderful warren of the old town, where you’ll find citrus coloured houses and alleys opening, surprisingly, onto squares shaded by palms. Perpignan was the capital of Mallorca, and there’s still a look to this city akin the the Balearics.

Perpignan is a very walkable city, and some of the bits you’ll want to walk to include the Palais des Rois de Majorque - the Palace of the Kings of Mallorca, which is one of the largest buildings in the city, a great star shaped citadel offering views out to the coast. You’ll possibly also be interested in seeing the wonderfully Gothic Cathedral of St. Jean Baptiste. Then there’s a cluster of interesting architecture in the old town and the wonderful Musée de Préhistoire de Tautavel in the cave riddled hills just north of town, which has a host of prehistoric treasures dating from around 450,000 years ago.
