For history, sport and sheer beauty, it's hard to beat Perpignan. Nestled deep in the heart of Catalonian France, the area is blessed with a gorgeous climate and spectacular coastline, it's easy to see why flights to Perpignan are popular all year round.

Getting Around

Another must-see is the Castle of the Kings of Majorca which sits on the high citadel, surrounded by ramparts and fortifications.

Activities

Sport is a passion in Perpignan and any trip should be timed to coincide with rugby season. Make sure to catch USAP Perpignan rugby team in one of their league or European encounters at Stade Aime Giral. You will find few sporting events that offer a better atmosphere! The festival Sant Joan also offers an epic experience that shouldn't be missed.
