Located in the south of France, and on the Mediterranean Sea close to the Spanish border, Port-Vendres dates back to 6th century BC, and has been an important fishing and commercial port ever since. Today, popular day excursions include visits to such major nearby sites as Carcassonne and Cadaquès, or taking the Train Jaune de Cerdagne for a ride linking Villefranche-de-Conflent to La Tour-de-Carol and filled with stunning landscapes. Stay in the city center and explore the monuments of famed military engineer Sébastien Le Prestre de Vauban, as well as the permanent exhibition dedicated to renowned Scottish architect and artist Charles Rennie Mackintosh, who spent a great deal of time in Port-Vendres. Complete your day with fresh local seafood like sea perch, tuna and sardines paired with the region’s renowned Collioure wines, then followed by a famed Banyuls dessert wine.
