We were given about 90 minutes to walk around on our own and have lunch. The main city gate, Le Castillet, is a small fortress built in the 14th century and has been preserved. A large Ferris Wheel was located in front of Le Castillet and The Bassa, a tributary of the Tet River that runs through Perpignan, and booths from the Christmas Market were set up.
For lunch, I stopped at a lunch counter open to the street and got a ham and cheese sandwich on French bread to go with a small bottle of coke.
This was a very nice hotel. Since it was late in the day and getting dark, I decided, rather than trying to see any sites, to take some photos of the hotel - the room was modern and large; the upper floor was pleasant; fruit and newspapers were outside my room; and the lobby was nicely decorated and had a snack bar.
Dinner was on our own - since I had eaten a lot during the trip, I did not want much so I went to a pizza place directly across the street from the hotel. I had just a small pizza with ham, artichokes and olives, and a few beers.
