    THAT'S WORTH A VISIT!

    Cal Mateu Farm is interesting for many reasons. It is an outstanding example of the cerdane farm in the 18th century adapted to livestock farming and cereal production. A proud building reflects the prestige of the new French royal power with the residence of the guard. It has been a museum in France since 1997.

    Next to this museum of popular arts and traditions, you will see the highest vine in Europe. The church is interesting for the beauty of its 16th century altarpieces.
