Presentation of a park not quite like the others…

Balcony over

Argelès-sur-Mer

It is the most beautiful viewpoint on the commune and the landscapes of the Pyrenees-Orientales, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea. In this green setting of 5 hectares, come and enjoy the shade of the forest for a family picnic (a playground is available for children). Do not hesitate to come and walk with your dog (they are allowed on a leash).

Information: barbecues are not allowed.

With the Valmy castle (private) as a backdrop in the style of the “Roaring Twenties”, the Valmy park is much more than a simple green space of 6 hectares open to the public free of charge and where it is good to stroll in peace and quiet… Benefiting from regular developments, the site now represents a real interest in terms of heritage, environment, culture and sport.

Heritage
Originally, straddling the 19th and 20th centuries, the park was owned by the Pams and Bardou families, the department’s great fortunes. They transformed this wine estate into a site of exceptional architecture, of which several traces remain: fountains, sculptures, basins, crypt, etc.
In addition, a botanical and cultural interpretation circuit allows you to find out more about the history, culture, heritage, fauna and flora of Argelès-sur-Mer and the Albères. It is made up of around fifteen thematic panels which will appeal to all audiences.

Starting point for walks and hikes

walking, cycling, mountain biking, trail...

From the map panels located on the Valmy car park, follow the well-maintained footpaths signposted to the chapels, the Massane tower, etc.
