Perpignan-Méditerranée, creative tourism as an immersive experience to live the Franco-Catalan culture

Perpignan-Méditerranée, a Franco-Catalan destination with the “Creative Friendly Destination” label, has a unique dual identity. The French art of living, gastronomy and craftsmanship merge joyfully with Catalan culture, its traditions and its values of generosity, sharing and conviviality.

Creative tourism is the best way to experience the richness of its heritage and the diversity of its territory. A mosaic of varied identities and geographies, Perpignan Méditerranée is made up of 36 municipalities spread over an area of 656 km2, including 22 km of coastline. Nestled in the heart of a triangle formed by the metropolises of Toulouse, Barcelona and Montpellier, this territory is a veritable centre of the worlds, as Dali was amused to say. This destination allows travellers to explore and enjoy activities in the city, on the sea and on the land.

The various creative tourism experiences offer the opportunity to criss-cross this rich territory and immerse oneself in the culture thanks to the multiplicity of passionate professionals – craftsmen, winemakers, farmers, breeders, artists and traders – who share their know-how for moments and micro-adventures conducive to exchange, learning and innovation.

Tasting the wines of Roussillon and the products of this generous land, practising a wide range of sporting activities, hiking in protected natural parks, visiting monuments and museums to discover an exceptional heritage, Perpignan is an invitation to travel, thanks in particular to the mild climate and the Catalan art of living.
