It is surrounded by France, but the commune of Llivia remains resolutely Spanish.
With the signing of the Treaty of the Pyrenees in 1659, the present day borders were formed between France and Spain, and after centuries of fighting and disagreement the Pyrenees were named as the true border bringing Roussillon, the Vallespir, the Conflent, Capcir and thirty-three villages of the Cerdagne under French rule. By a strange quirk of fate it was decreed that Llivia, in the Cerdagne, was not a village but a town, and as the treaty stipulated that only villages were to be ceded to France, Llivia remains, inside France, a small enclave of Spanishness.
Fortified XVII century church and the “Oldest Pharmacy In Europe”, founded at the beginning of the 15th century and now a small museum with antique drugs, and one of the largest collections of prescription books in Europe.
