This is the highest hill on the plain of Rousillon. From here you have a 360 degree panorama of the plains.

This is also an archaeological site. Fossils as old as 4.5 million years old were found here, including those of monkeys, bears, saber-toothed cat, the little horse, lynx, rhinoceros, and elephants… as well the largest turtle known to have existed on earth (see it’s moulding in the Perpignan Natural History Museum; see the original in the Gallery of Evolution in Paris).

But the most important monument here is the artillery fort, a four hectare defensive construct. It has five bastions and a barracks. Before the fort existed, it was on this hill in 1793 that the French battled the Spanish. It is now a public park.
