Presentation of the territory
The Aspres, "a secret territory"
At the foothill of the Canigou, the land of the "Aspres" is composed of valleys covered with thick forests higher up, and low-growing vegetation in the plains.
Its paths have been long used by merchants and miners, not to mention pilgrims on their way to St Jacques de Compostelle.
A chapel or a church full of history is to be found in each village of the territory.
Nowadays, in the Aspres, we are developing “green tourism”, which reveals the authentic heritage - cultural and gastronomic - of the Catalan country.
