  • What would Céret without its bridges? A very pretty town no doubt. But the charm multiplied its arches that rise above the Tech, aren't there for nothing. Arriving from St.-Jean-Pla-de-Corts, and in the direction of Amélie-les-Bains, they surprise, at the entrance to the city, which they are, so to speak, the outposts; as an invitation to go further, sparing possible. Here, nothing can stop all spear forward. Bridge, there is one that is reserved for car traffic, the Center, then one who sees passing trains, on the right, and finally, on the left, one that, despite its smell of suffers, has the oldest letters of nobility: the Devil's bridge (or old bridge). Built between 1321 and 1341, rebuilt in the 18th century, it overlooks the River, watches over those who cross him and accompanies its become almost inaudible murmur the mad rush of the passing time. Instead of nice walks along the banks of the Tech, the Devil's bridge served as the subject of painters, including Paul cezanne, Auguste Herbin, and Vincent Bioulès, and décor precarious in the filming of a scene from the film André Hunebelle, "The hunchback", with Jean Marais (1959). Classified Historical Monuments by list of 1840.

  • A natural Pearl with free admission and lots of excitement. Swim upriver into the gap, leap from the rocks and the bridge, if you dare, or go hiking in the area on the many trails. Even "Via Ferrata" by cable car. The city seems nice and not as a tourist trap.

  • Whether you are a painter or tourist, you can avoid this pedestrian bridge that dominates the Tech the ultimate is to photograph or paint like Bioules, alignment of the 3 bridges
