Dating back to the 10th Century, Perpignan is a city steeped in history. Formerly the capital of Roussillon, Perpignan has been the focal point of many military struggles including the latter part of the Thirty Years War which led to Perpignan being ceded to France by the Spanish. Since then the city has enjoyed a fusion of French and Catalonian culture with elements of both in its architecture and cuisine. Perpignan is now host to many exciting annual events, such as the Guitares au Palais, a music festival with pop and alternative music, sports tournaments based around their very successful Rugby team and arts exhibitions as well as markets. The rich history provides many must see sites and its proximity to the sea invites access to a multitude of water sports.
