Located south, Font Romeu, meaning Fountain Pilgrim, has about 3 500 hours of sunshine a year. The resort receives a multitude of athletes who wish to regenerate, and many children with asthma also came to heal.

Very close to Spain and Andorra, Font Romeu is famous for its ski slopes in winter, its open spaces and its protected environment. Its inhabitants have kept a strong Catalan identity which is reflected in its language, traditions and gastronomy.
