Céret and surroundings
Around Mas Trilles, extend superb and vast spaces for excursions; the road of the vineyards, the Vallespir's mountains, the vermilion coast and its coastal paths. Change of scenery is two steps away, with Spain, the town of Figueres, Cadaques and the Dali tour.
The region offers our guest several possible activities and visits whether it is Cathar fortresses such as Peyrpertusse and Queribus, medieval villages such as Prats-de-Mollo or visiting the seaside with the picturesque port village of Collioure and the Côte Vermeille.
Céret - This small charming village with Plantain tree lined streets much beloved by artists including Picasso, Matisse and Herbin, is best known for its Museum of Modern Art and of course, its cherries. There is a market every Saturday which over the years has become quite the event with stalls filled with local produce. During the summer months (July to end of August) there is also an evening market every Tuesday dedicated to artisanal products (arts and crafts).
Musée d'Art Moderne of Céret
Born in 1950, Najia Mehadji divides her life and work between Paris and Essaouira, a portal town south of Casablanca. She draws on her dual culture to select themes imbued with symbolic power, celebrating union, fusion and togetherness. The exhibition will span the French Moroccan artist’s entire career, tracing her artistic development between East and West, between pictorial and symbolic exploration.
It will bring together some fifty canvases and around one hundred graphic works from public and private collections. Historical works, many on loan from the Musée d’Orsay, the Institut du Monde Arabe and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, will serve as a counterpoint to highlight the universality of the artist’s sources of inspiration.
