Sightseeing route in Perpignan

Perpignan

【City description】

The town was in the Catalonia region before. So, we can feel the Catalonia culture by the buildings and foods. In particular, the narrow streets in the center area are like Spain. We can see the town entirely from the Palace of Majorque King.
