Once there, you can get around on the efficient local buses, although a car is useful for sightseeing a little further outside of town. There’s so much to explore in Perpignan.

This can still be seen in the area around Place Joseph Cassanyes which is to this day predominantly populated by people of Arabic descent. You will discover myriad beautiful North African offerings here, from street cafes to jewellery, herbs and spices and the sweet, sticky delicacy that is baklava.
