Things to do: sightseeing
Villefranche-de-Conflent is historically a town in the Conflent region of Catalonia, and now a commune in the Pyrénées-Orientales department in southern France.History and geographyThe original town dates from 1098, and was fortified because of its strategic position in lands that changed hands between French and Spanish occupation. In 1374, Villefranche resisted the siege of Jaume III the son of last king of Majorca. In July 1654, the French captured the city after eight days, and the troops of Louis XIV took Puigcerda from the Spaniards. The town was part of the program of construction and improvement of outlying French defenses led by through 1707 by Marshal Vauban, and as such is listed as a World Heritage Site. The defensive walls of the town remain.The town's confined site, at about 440 m above sea level, is relatively level ground surrounded by the northeast-flowing river Têt (on the town's west and north), the Cady, which flows north to empty into the Têt (on the east), and a peak (at nearly 800 m), less than 800 m away (on the south). The N116 from Perpignan on the Mediterranean passes, as a two-lane highway, between the southern town wall and an embankment cut into the high ground to the south; this route continues west into the adjacent Cerdagne region.
