While you're there

Perpignan, between Spain and France, it’s a whole culture!

In 1963, Salvador Dali declared that the railway station of Perpignan was indeed the centre of the whole universe. Is it real or not, nobody knows. Yet one thing is for sure: Perpignan, capital of the Pyrénées Orientales department, is definitely a pleasurable city.

Perpignan used to belong to the counts of Barcelona and became french only after the Thirty Years’ War in 1659. Thus, you should not be surprised to find there a pretty interesting mixture of catalan and french cultures.

Wonders like the cathedral of Saint John the Baptist or the Palace of the Kings of Majorca, as well as many places and ballads along the river Basse are not to be missed.
Together with tasty wines from the Roussillon area, you might also enjoy the traditionnal boles de picolat (delicious catalan meatballs served with beans).

In Perpignan and around, you will find all you were looking for!

  • "French rail pass FC"    
    cleaner.  
  • "euro trip by train"    
    excellent in all aspects. full 5 *s  
  • "ok"    
    Everything was good)) Quietly, comfortable and very fast)) Thanks)  
  • "Trip to the South!"    
    This was a wonderful experience! The seats were more comfortable than on the airplane flying back to Paris! The food on the train was excellent but a bit on the expensive side. I will however, recommend the TGV.  
  • "Baggage and announcements"    
    We found the lack of enough suitcase storage space very annoying. This meant we had to drag our suitcases down the aisle sideways as there was not enough space in the aisle to wheel them along. People were forced to leave their suitcases near exit doors, which made it difficult and dangerous to get on and off the train. The racks above the seats were also too small to store anything larger than a small backpack. In all the countries we traveled through on previous trips to Europe, announcements on the trains were made first in that country's language and then in English. EXCEPT in France..Tthis is still the case!!!..the only announcement made in English was which carriage had the cafeteria. The French need to realise that English is the universal language!!!!!!!!!!!  
  • "Outstanding "    
    Thank you for a wonderful trip and making my holiday in France such a great experience.  
  • "a delightful journal"    
    My husband and I are from the US and thoroughly enjoyed our train trip. Our seats were comfortable; the food service was great; we arrived on time. Our only difficulty was that announcements were of course, in French, so we sometimes weren't sure of what was going on (like when the food was to be served). I was not thrilled with the on-line ordering process and the cost of shipping my tickets from Mumbai - but that is for another survey.  
  • "Going Home"    
    This was the second last leg of our France Trip. We boarded on time and found our seats, which were at the back of the carriage. As there were 4 of us, we were conveniently seated behind a little petition. The train ride was very pleasant indeed. We bought a coffee after a couple of hours and enjoyed the scenery. The trip went fast and we would certainly travel again with TGV. We wish they had trains like this in Australia !
