Guide to Perpignan
Perpignan was founded in the 10th Century and became the capital of the Counts of Roussillon shortly thereafter. It came under the control of the Counts of Barcelona in 1172 and when the Kingdom of Majorca was founded by James I of Aragon in 1276, Perpignan was declared the kingdom’s mainland capital. The city has a long history as an inspirational interface between Barcelona, Catalonia and the south of France and this is still reflected in its rich and exuberant culture. The surrounding terrain is also ripe for road trips, with verdant vineyards, orchards bursting with flavour and colour, and holiday hotspots like Collioure.
