Also at Banyuls-sur-Mer is one of the oldest aquariums in France located at the Arago Laboratory and if you are interested in sculpture then there is the Maillol Museum.
Carcassone - Carcassone is the epitome of a fairytale medieval castle and the entire city is an unmisable place to visit. The fortifications consists of a double ring of ramparts and 53 towers.
Fort de Salses - The fortress of Salses began life as a Spanish defensive structure. It was started under king Ferdinand in 1497 and took several years to complete. However, under the Treaty of the Pyreneees, in 1659 it became French property, as did the whole of Rousillon. The fort de Salses is about 15 km north of Perpignan.
La Gourges de la Fou - Gigantic cliffs of red go up to the attack of the sky. These gorges are one of the narrowest in the world. They are 1700 meters length, by, in places, 250 meters depth, this geological site is very popular and frequently visited. Protected by a metal net and thanks to a footbridge installed over the entire length, all the families can, in full safety, enjoy the gourges.
Barcelona is only a couple of hours away and well worth a visit. It is the second largest city of Spain, and the capital of Catalonia.
