Port Vendres’ Pavillon des Arts is host to the maritime paintings of Romer Kitching in which  docks, boats, sky and sea  take on an immaterial aspect in the hands of this classically trained artist.

An anonymous 12th century sculptor, the Master of Cabestany was not recognised until the 1930s when a Romanesque-style tympanum was unearthed during renovation work at the parish church of Cabestany.

With quaint, cobbled streets, pretty squares, lively shops, restaurants, and bars, and art and music museums, there is certainly enough temptation to hang around the town, but there is plenty going on around and about too.
