Perpignan is a historic and attractive city that lies less than 10 miles from the sea and has a population of around 117 000. There are two rivers that flow through it. The Basse runs through the centre and the Têt runs to the north. Perpignan is only 23.5 miles from the border with Spain, making it the ideal place to explore places in the area with a Spanish influence. The city itself has interesting alleyways, squares shaded by palm trees, and pastel-coloured buildings and, thanks to its proximity to Spain, is a great place to enjoy fiestas and events throughout the year. Enterprise has two branches in Perpignan, one in the city centre right by the train station and one at Perpignan Airport.

Parking And Traffic Information In Perpignan

The city benefits from a ring road, with various routes coming off this for convenient access to different districts.
