Pyrénées-orientales

Canigou

For the Catalan, Canigou is a highly praised symbolic mountain that inspired many popular songs and poems and that used to host the garnet and iron –among other raw materials– used by the local artisans.

Prades and Perpignan

In Prades and Perpignan, you will find master jewellers who transform garnet, a semi-precious red stone, into necklaces, rings and earrings.

Arles-sur-Tech

In Arles-sur-Tech, pay attention to the wrought iron details of the balconies of the 16th and 18th century buildings and visit Le Moulin des Arts et de l’Artisanat –a former factory of Catalan fabrics that hosts several workshops (pottery, stained glass, foundry, …)– and a shop that gathers the works of a dozen of designers.

St-Laurent-de-Cerdans

Weaving is an art that is part of the Catalan ancestral tradition. Visit St-Laurent-de-Cerdans and fill your house with napkins, towels and curtains full of Mediterranean colours and don’t leave without “vigatanes”, the typical Catalan espadrilles, with rope sole and weaved ribbons, traditionally used by fishermen, farmers and sardana dancers.
