Your Ceret Bucket List
Musee d’Art Moderne
Feature works by Picasso, Chagall, Dufy and Dali. The collection began with pictures donated by artists who had painted in Ceret and then between 1950 and 1957 the collection was given a huge boost by the donation of 28 pieces of ceramic art by Picasso, and 14 sketches drawn in Collioure, by Matisse. The museum now has an important collection of modern art works and is well worth a visit.
Pont du Diable
Three bridges span the Tech in Ceret. The railway bridge, the road, the XIV century Devil’s bridge (le pont du diable). By far the most attractive, it was supposedly built by the devil in 1321 in exchange for the soul of the first Ceretian to cross. The engineer sent a cat across first but, even so, the locals at the time were very wary of using its single 45 metre arch.
La Porte de la France
Another part of the old ramparts and one of the original gateways into the town. Two main entrances to the town were built – this one to enter from France and the La Porte d’Espagne to enter from the Spanish side. Use this walking guide for a 60 minute Walking tour around old town Ceret.
Saturday Farmers' Market
Saturday Farmers’ Market (8am – 1pm) is one of the best markets in the region with loads of atmosphere, accordian music etc, and very French. Although the market is only 15 metres from our front door, bring a shopping basket – you will need it! Other markets:
- Night market ‘Les Vespéralles’ every Tuesday from July to end August
Ermitage de St Ferreol
Situated to the north east of Cérêt, at an altitude of 300m, this 13th century chapel had the hermitage added in the 18th century and other buildings added later to accommodate the many pilgrims who came to pray at the chapel of St Ferréol. You can take a short circular walk of 2hrs plus time to enjoy the scenery and visit the Ermitage. It is suitable for all walkers with a reasonable level of fitness.
Musée des Instruments
If you are interested in music, or a musician yourself, this museum is not to be missed. Housed in the former St. Pierre Hospital, next to La Capelleta, Ceret’s Museum of Instruments and Music is an extensive and fascinating collection of all imaginable types of musical instrument.
