The Illibéris has been a land of unparalleled historical richness since antiquity. Ideally located between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, the plain of Roussillon forms a colorful carpet, made up of vines, market gardening and fruit growing areas. A few kilometers from the beaches, not far from Perpignan and the Côte Vermeille, the town of Elne and the nearby villages of Bages and Ortaffa retain an impressive heritage heritage.
Here, between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, 27 centuries of history are at your feet!
Many archaeological digs have revealed the secrets of people who have lived there for almost three millennia. Here, appointments to discover heritage treasures are a must. However, do not miss to take your eyes on a journey while enjoying the magnificent panoramas of the surrounding mountains and the Canigou, sacred mountain of the Catalans!
The Mas Larrieu Reserve
Created in 1984, the Mas Larrieu reserve is located at the mouth of the Tech, in the municipalities of Elne and Argelès-sur-Mer. It brings together, on a relatively small territory, different biotopes: dune environments, aquatic environments, swamps, forest environment, reedbeds, with a double influence, from the Tech and the Sea.
