Where are the Pyrenees Orientales?
Located in the extreme south of France in the Languedoc Roussillon region, this department shares its territory between plain, sea and mountain. It enjoys a Mediterranean climate. Remained very agricultural there is a lot of culture (orchard and market gardening). This is the place where the Pyrenees plunge into the Mediterranean Sea by this small mountain range called the Albères and whose summit, the Peak of Neoulous culminates at 1240m.
Argelès (a small town of about 10,000 inhabitants) is located at the foot of Albères. It is often synonymous with summer crowds but if you leave the most famous beaches to go to the mountains you will find a nature presumed to countless paths and exeptional panoramas.
