With a metro population of over two hundred and sixty thousand people, Perpignan is the closest major French city to the Spanish border. This region has a long history of conflict between the two nations, and is the French capital of Catalan culture. With excellent transit connections to both France and Spain and a Mediterranean climate that ensures nearly 2,500 hours of sunshine each year, this southern French city has flown into the radar of many tourists for a long time, but is steadily coming into its own.
Considering its Mediterranean location, Perpignan is an absolute baby compared to many of the cities around it. Although there was a settlement at Perpignan in Roman times, the town itself wasn't founded until approximately the tenth century. However, it soon became important as the capital of the Rousillon counts. Once self-governing, the city became part of the Kingdom of Majorca in 1276. In 1344, it was annexed to the County of Barcelona. Captured by the French several times through the centuries, Perpignan didn't become part of France permanently until after the Thirty Years War in the 17th century. As a result, Perpignan has held onto its unique Catalan culture. You'll see roadsigns in Catalan as well as French, and the distinctive Catalonia flag hanging proudly all over the city.
Perpignan's history as an important medieval town has left it with several fascinating historic sites, including the Palace of the Kings of Majorca. And as the capital of French Catalonia, you'll find a culture here closer to that of Barcelona than most of France. There is no shortage of things to do in this underrated city.
Explore the history of a vanished kingdom at the Palace of the Kings of Majorca. Built in 1276 by King Jaime II, this Gothic fortress incorporates Moorish, Arabic, and Spanish architectural influences. Guided tours will show you the best-preserved parts of the fortress and explain the history of the kingdom that built it.
Delve into the dark past of the city at Ancien-Eveche. This museum is dedicated to the Procession de la Sanch, and if you don't visit the city on Good Friday to see the procession for yourself, this is the next best thing. The procession was once a way of taking prisoners to execution, and the black hooded robes of the participants are a spooky but fascinating spectacle.
See the spiritual heart of the city at Perpignan Cathedral. Founded in 1324, this Gothic cathedral houses priceless artwork from past centuries and is a stunning place to visit for yourself.
Get an impressive view of the city from the ancient fortress of Le Castillet. Built in the fourteenth century, this sturdy defensive tower has also served as a prison. One hundred and forty-two stone steps lead to the roof where you can get great views of the town.
Celebrate the modern culture of Perpignan at a rugby league game. This part of France is rugby mad, and Perpignan's biggest stadium is the home of the Catalan Dragons, a member of the top professional rugby league in Europe. Watching a home game lets you mingle with local residents and enjoy a classic Perpignan tradition.

This was my first time using this service and it worked seamlessly. I had no problems at all dropping my bag off at NYC Racquet Sports and it was just as easy picking it up. This location is a couple blocks from Penn Station, so it was perfect for exploring Manhattan for several hours before catching the train to Newark Airport for a late night flight. Will definitely use this service on future trips!
Really excellent service, right around the corner from A/C/E trains at Penn Station in New York. Popular and busy restaurant, too — but no one kept me waiting to drop off or pick up a bag.
This place is awesome, it’s near Macy’s and other souvenir shops, nearby food outlets too and near the Penn station in New York. This is the best place to leave your luggage for last minute shopping before you head to the airport via Penn station. Plus the Employees are very courteous and kind
