Starting from the "center of the world" (undoubtly the Perpignan railway station), just follow the trail of Catalan artists where the "Côte Vermeille" take the aspect of a painting from a "fantasmagorical" palette.
It is no wonder that these magical, sunny, mediterranean spots, attracted some of the greatest artists such as Dali, Miro, Pixtot, Picasso, Matisse, and so many more…
Our route goes through the Alberes range and its famous signal towers (from the XIVth century) and then it follows
the Pyrenees down to where they reach the sea.
The stopovers are in comfortable and welcoming hotels, allowing us to enjoy even more this wonderful coast.
Let yourself choose between "mar I munt" on the trails that we have seen grow.
