The region blessed with many wineries extends along the Mediterranean coast to the Pyrenees Mountains. The landscape has wild rocky gorges, colourful orchard groves, and vibrant market gardens. The ancient hilltop villages and ruined castles on mountain crags such as the Cathar castles add an element of romance.
