The capital of the Kingdom of Majorca during the 13th century, and once Catalonia`s second city after Barcelona, Perpignan is a southern French city near the Mediterranean coast and the border with Spain. Perpignan is the meeting point of all the routes which lead to the seaside and the mountains. Catalan influence is evident in its medieval core. South of the old town, the huge Gothic-and-Romanesque Palace of the Kings of Majorca has ramparts with views to the coast. Magnificent monuments: the "Palais des Rois de Majorque", the Castillet, the "Loge de Mer", the cathedral of St John the Baptist built between the 1324 and 1509 or the Campo Santo can be admired here. Immortalized by Dali to make its train station the center of the world, Perpignan will seduce you by its diversity.
