An invitation to explore the vast natural resorts and the wine routes of Languedoc-Roussillon and to discover its cultural beauty...
Downtown, numerous cosy shops, picturesque restaurants and pubs with pavements out front stand peacefully between the ancient city walls and gates. This area prides itself in its fruit and vegetables. These are for sale in the local market (3 x week) and in local shops.The cathedral was built in the 11th century, in what is known as 'Haute Elne', on the remains of the ancient Gallic-roman oppidum 'Illiberis' - Elne was the Episcopal seat of Roussillon from the 6th to the 17th century. The monastery with its blue-veined marble splendour is one of the most beautiful ones of Catalonian France.
Today it houses an archaeological museum. Guided visits are organised starting from the monastery to the cathedral, the preserved city walls and the Terrus museum. This museum shows the works of the painter of the same name (1857-1944), a friend of the more famous H. Matisse, and of the sculptor A. Maillol (1861-1922).The whole year through, concerts and festivities are taking place, folklore and tradition are still alive in for example the 'sardane', a dance performed every Wednesday evening in Summer: a very special event, indeed.
From Elne, a 5 Km drive between vineyards and orchards leads to the coast and natural resort of the old 'embouchure du Tech' with its sandy beach. Nearby is the sea-resort St-Cyprien. There are plenty of opportunities for water sports, and also to play tennis, do horseriding and golf. Away from the sea, you have a choice of beautiful excursions to the nearby mountains: the Corbières in the North, the Pyrenees in the West and the Albères in the South.
Besides numerous splendid Romanesque and Gothic buildings, it is also more than worthwhile to visit the Cathar fortresses of Peyrepertuse and Quéribus. Prehistory is brought to live again in the museum of Tautavel. Furthermore, there are the Gorges de Galamus, the picturesque sea-resort Collioure, etc. The old upper town of Elne has a diameter of but 250 to 300 metres. You will find here everything within walking distance: the Tourist office, next to the “Salon de Thé”, the art glassworks, the restaurant “Au Remp’arts”, the art galleries, the museums, the magnificent romanesque monastery with the cathedral, the roman baths, and of course, the impressing city walls offering a beautiful view on downtown Elne, the surrounding countryside, and the Pyrenees.
At the foot of the ancient city wall lies old downtown Elne. Here you will find the shops, several nice outdoor cafés, and the inevitable “Place de la République” in the shape of an arena.
Here and in the adjacent shopping street (Rue Nationale), local shopkeepers are organising several times a week a morning market, and once a week there is even a bigger market selling clothing, food, vegetables, fruits, flowers and local specialties. The latter is highly recommended.Elne has about 7,000 inhabitants and a total surface of 21.3 km².
