The village of Castelnou is one of the most remarkable sites in Catalonia. Like five other villages in the Pyrénées-Orientales department, it is ranked among the most beautiful villages in France.

Start with a short break in the Col car park. You will discover the village, its viscount's castle and in the background the Canigou, mythical mountain of all Catalans (2 m). Let your imagination take over, in another era when Castelnou was the capital of the Viscounty of Vallespir... 

Stroll through the alleys of this medieval village and meet its many craftsmen.
