South of France, in reach of Spain

South of France, in reach of Spain

Perpignan, France is a thriving city highly influenced by its close proximity to Spain. You’ll notice it the minute you arrive at Perpignan train station (also known as Gare de Perpignan). Serving southern France, parts of the station were decorated by none other than Salvador Dalí.

Local gastronomy is shaped by the proximity to Spain as well : highly influenced by Catalan cuisine, combining both French and Northeast Spanish styles.

About France

Equally delicious ? The sightseeing and natural beauty you’ll find there. Take the Palais des Rois de Majorque, which offers both. This austere looking castle built in 1276 as the king’s residence is renowned for its beautiful gardens and courtyard as well as its ability to attract visitors. During the summer, its home to the Guitares au Palais, a 3-day free music festival with pop, traditional and alternative music. And why not visit the Place de la Loge, once Perpignan’s stock exchange ? Paved in pink marble, it was first constructed in the 14th century and rebuilt during the Renaissance.

Today, one of Perpignan’s biggest exports is wine, fruits and vegetables that are processed and transported from there. And thanks to the Gare de Perpignan, you can get stress-free connections to practically anywhere, including Perpignan to Barcelona,

Perpignan to Paris, Toulouse and other regional destinations.

    Trip to the South ! |
    "This was a wonderful experience ! The seats were more comfortable than on the airplane flying back to Paris ! The food on the train was excellent but a bit on the expensive side. I will however, recommend the TGV. "

    Baggage and announcements |
    "We found the lack of enough suitcase storage space very annoying. This meant we had to drag our suitcases down the aisle sideways as there was not enough space in the aisle to wheel them along. People were forced to leave their suitcases near exit doors, which made it difficult and dangerous to get on and off the train. The racks above the seats were also too small to store anything larger than a small backpack. In all the countries we traveled through on previous trips to Europe, announcements on the trains were made first in that country's language and then in English. EXCEPT in France..Tthis is still the case !!!..the only announcement made in English was which carriage had the cafeteria. The French need to realise that English is the universal language !!!!!!!!!!! "

    "My husband and I are from the US and thoroughly enjoyed our train trip. Our seats were comfortable ; the food service was great ; we arrived on time. Our only difficulty was that announcements were of course, in French, so we sometimes weren't sure of what was going on (like when the food was to be served). I was not thrilled with the on-line ordering process and the cost of shipping my tickets from Mumbai - but that is for another survey. "

    "This was the second last leg of our France Trip. We boarded on time and found our seats, which were at the back of the carriage. As there were 4 of us, we were conveniently seated behind a little petition. The train ride was very pleasant indeed. We bought a coffee after a couple of hours and enjoyed the scenery. The trip went fast and we would certainly travel again with TGV. We wish they had trains like this in Australia ! "
