The Canigou, sacred mountain of the Catalan people
Sacred mountain of the Catalan people, the peak of the Canigou is one of the highest peaks of the entire Pyrenees mountain range. The Canigou dominates with its 2 785 m the whole of the Pyrénées Orientales and offers a spectacular view over the plains of the Roussillon. When the weather is clear, those who look to the south can even see the big city of Barcelona, yet it lies 200 kilometres further south as the crow flies!
Labelled 'Great Site of France', the Canigou peak is also a symbol of theCatalan identity.
Several hiking trails give access to the top, the place of a forged iron cross. During the summer, these paths are used by many hikers.
Even if some are reserved for the more experienced walkers, others are accessible to everyone.
