Collioure

Collioure, known as the "City of Painters" as the Fauvism movement was born here. Matisse, Derain, Dufy, Chagall, Picasso and others immortalized this idyllic fishing village in their works. On the rocky coastline, it is situated about 25 minutes drive from Perpignan. The picturesque village is nestled in an authentic environment - its small Catalan harbor is sheltered by a quiet bay where the chain of the Pyrenees meets the Mediterranean Sea. Have a swim at the Collioure beach and enjoy a seafood lunch after shopping at the charming art boutiques.
