1 – The cliff
Unique natural site on the coast, the limestone cliff of Leucate stands out from the landscape! The whiteness of its stone reminded the ancient Greek navigators of the white of their own cliffs: Leucate comes from the Greek Leukos meaning white, Laucata in Occitan.
Its strategic position between the mountains and the sea gives it an unobstructed view of the entire coastline, from Cap Creus to Sète. During the Second World War, the Germans took up residence on the cliff, as the remains of shelters and bunkers can testify.
For sunrises lovers, panoramic views or birdwatching, it’s a must! To be discovered urgently by hiking or mountain biking!
