Fourques

 

Fourques is a village of Aspres situated in the upper valley of the Réart, called here “la Galcerana”.

Its history is linked to the Middle Ages, when Abbot Robert d’ Arles had a “cellera” (fortified fortress) built, which was called “Castell”.

It has a curious and rather rare detail: it was not built around the church dedicated to Saint Martin, as was usually the case, but a few hundred meters away. This Romanesque church with a single nave also houses several baroque altarpieces from the 17th and 18th centuries.

A visit to the church and the old village is essential, you can explore the charming surrounding streets, and the “Castell” which is approached through a door located near the town hall.

Like many Aspres communes, Fourques still has a few houses with the remains of painted eaves.

Highest: 137 meters

16 km southwest of Perpignan
