Sure you know that Catalonia it also extends further north of the Pyrenees, by the neighbor France, having as its best shows the city ​​of Perpignan,but also places with as much charm as the seaside town of Colliure, in the zone of Eastern Pyrenees.

Recently I had the opportunity to travel to Perpignan, where you may not know that from Madrid you can arrive by AVE in just over four hours, and that is a stone's throw from Catalan cities like Barcelona or Girona.

In Perpignan I have discovered a medieval city which has great historical ties with Spain, which date back to the time of kingdom of Aragon, but also had great prominence after the Civil war, when the city and the region became a refuge for thousands of exiled Spaniards.

Without doubt the most illustrious was Antonio Machada, whose grave is now a must see in the aforementioned town of Colliure.

A walk through the historic center of Perpignan, starting from its icon monument, the Castillet, it shows you the characteristic configuration of a medieval walled city, with narrow streets, houses with gothic facades and palaces that show their greatest splendor in their interiors.
