The Cathedral Basilica of Saint John the Baptist of Perpignan is a Roman Catholic cathedral, and a national monument of France, located in Languedoc-Roussillon. The cathedral was begun in 1324 by King Sancho of Majorca, and later finished in the 15th century.Great landmark to visit.

Well worth taking 15 minutes out to look around this beautiful building with stunning architecture and lavish religious iconicry. I am a complete non beliver but was wowed by the building. It would have been better if some of the explanatory signs where in English.

Impressive cathedral. Sadly, a lot of nice cathedrals start to blend together when you tour around Europe but the detail and stained glass windows on this one stood out for some reason. It’s a definite must for this city but not reason enough to go...More

Imposing building, absolutely huge inside. Lovely square in front of cathedral with coffee tables under trees, and gorgeous old houses on either side the square.
