Situated on the Tet River, 13 km west of the Mediterranean Sea and 31 km north of the Spanish border, Perpignan is famous for its art treasures, with several of its well-preserved medieval buildings, such as le Castillet and the Palace of the Kings of Majorca, having been turned into museums. Once the capital of the old province of Roussillon, or French Catalonia, the town retains a decidedly Catalan flavor, evident in its language and cuisine as well as in its weekly summer celebrations highlighting the Sardana, a dance performed in the place de la Loge. Perpignan is also a flourishing market center featuring local wines, fruit and vegetables.
