Perpignan Museums

Prices and times correct at time of writing but worth ringing and checking in advance

 

 

Perpignan is the capital of the Catalan region and owes much of its heritage and cultural development to the kings of Majorca, responsible for the transformation of Perpignan into a thriving trading post during the middle ages. The Palace of the Majorcan kings still dominates the town while the Castillet, once a city gate, then a prison, now a museum, is all that is left of the original city walls. Today, Perpignan is a colourful mix of old and new, combining chic and stylish department stores, trendy boutiques and busy restaurants with narrow, cobbled streets and small intimate bistros.
