Cloisters at Elne, near Perpignan and Collioure, Pyrenees Orientales

The cloister and magnicent church are very well worth the climb and walk in this town that once was the capital of Roman Roussillon. The emperor Constantine named the town after his mother - Helena. Visit the local art gallery which has good views as well as art. The cloister is exceptional for its stone carvings and sense of tranquility.
