Grand Site de France
Visitor's Rating: (0 out of 4/Number of Votes:0)
The Paulilles Cove is listed as a "Grand Site de France". It contains 3 of the most beautiful beaches at the foothills of the Eastern Pyrenees Mountains. Ironically one may say, the site was saved from the urban development by a dynamite factory created by the very Alfred Nobel in 1870. The factory closed in 1984 and is now a landmark that can be visited by industrial tourism enthusiasts. The beauty and attractiveness of Paulilles Cove consists also in its remarkable flora including endemic species like the Arméria du Roussillon, Polycarpon de Catalogne, Thymelaea hirsuta etc. as well as 10 rare bird species like the pale martinet, the blue merle, the rock thrush etc.
