Perpignan is the main city in the region of Roussillon in the south of France. It has around 300,000 inhabitants in the metropolitan area. This is most likely where you arrive if you travel from far away and come to explore the wines of this beautiful region. However, you may want to choose a smaller place as base camp if you plan to travel around visiting vineyards.
There is a charming old city with many winding streets and alleys, restaurants and cafés, shops etc. The centre was once encircled by ramparts, only some ruins are left. There is a massive palace called "Palace of the Kings of Majorca" on one of the hills in the city.
The city is not on the coast but travelling less than half an hour east you will reach the beach. along the coast there are several small "fishing" villages, today more dedicated to tourism: Collioure, Banyuls, Port Vendres.
