. Hiking enthusiasts: there are 6 nature reserves (Conat, Nyer, Nohedes, Py, Mantet and Jujols), not to mention the multitude of hiking routes in the heart of the Catalan Pyrenees.
Without forgetting our famous Canigou, emblem of the Pyrénées-Orientales and classified Grand Site of France in July 2012, and Grand Site Occitanie since 2017, the Canigó is an exceptional natural place conducive to hiking. Visible from Languedoc, Ariège and the province of Girona, it is also an identity symbol of the Pyrenean landscape.
Between hikes, walks with donkeys or the pleasure of nature, the Canigó massif is a unique place not to be missed, the real heart of the Catalan Country!
We are also lucky to have magnificent abbeys:
Located in the heart of the Canigou massif, on an eagle's nest, the former Benedictine abbey of Saint-Martin-du-Canigou has discreetly overlooked the Cady valley since the 11th century and invites you to discover its unique site. The Lombard bell tower, the marble capitals, the abbey church and the vaulted crypt make it a jewel of the first regional Romanesque art. An essential part of the Romanesque heritage of Conflent, the Abbey of Saint-Martin-du-Canigou will be an opportunity to take a walk in the heart of exceptional nature.
In a valley in the heart of Romanesque Conflent and at the foot of Canigo, the Abbey of Saint-Michel is an exceptional architectural ensemble (10th - 12th centuries) with its basilica, one of the largest and most significant pre-Romanesque churches in Europe, its Lombard Romanesque bell tower, its crypt and its Romanesque cloister. It has been the home of Benedictine monks since 878.
For those who prefer aquatic activities you have the Aquagliss in the neighbouring town of Vinça suitable for the whole family. The more adventurist types might appreciate Aqua branch or canyoning in the Canigou gorges and elsewhere.
To relax, come and enjoy the natural hot water baths of Saint Thomas. These exceptional thermal waters have analgesic, relaxing, anti-allergic and healing properties. Three outdoor pools with Jacuzzi, waterfalls, massage jets, a real treat for families, couples or friends.
We are ideally located between the sea and the mountains, so for ski /snowshoe enthusiasts but also for those who prefer beach activities. The sunny Catalan Country offers a wide range of activities suitable for all. You Will find what you are looking for.
