TThe medieval walled town of Villefranche-d-Conflent is about 20 minutes away on the N119 to Andorra. Villefranche-de-Conflent (Catalan: Vilafranca de Conflent) is historically a town in the Conflent region of Catalonia, and now a commune in the Pyrénées-Orientales department in southern France. The original town dates from 1098, and was fortified because of its strategic position in lands that changed hands between French and Spanish occupation. All photos © Jon Davison 2014.
