There is a train staion in the town so you can get almost everywhere by train though car is highly recommended. Pyrenees-Orientales is a beautiful region with perfect climate and a lot of places to visit. Among them: Villefranche de Conflent A medieval town with complete fortified walls. It is also the starting point for a ride on Yellow Train. You can ride in open or closed top carriages admiring the breathtaking view. Abbeys at St Martin de Canigou & St Michel de Cuxa. By the way, St Michel de Cuxa it that very place where the heroine finally kills Dracula in the bestseller by E. Kostova “The Historian” (see a very nice shot by another VT member on this site).Tautavel Museum – the site of the oldest human in Europe. Natural reserve in Nyer - wild life of the Pyrenees preserved as it is. The Perfume Tower in Mosset can be reached in 15 min, the Solar Oven at Mont-Louis in 30 min by car. And also Perpignan with its Palace of the Kings of Majorca, Collioure with its Royal palace overlooking one of the most beautiful ports in France, Ceret with its Modern Arts museum are well worth visiting.
