Visit the local Tourist Office
Favorite thing: This attractive building is easily found at the end of Boulevard Maréchal Joffre, past the Museum and the Mairie turn left and you won't miss it.
The Staff are welcoming and helpful and the building to the left behind the statue - is a small hall- that often houses local exhibitions. We saw a local Quilters show there on our first visit in 2007.
Note the statue in the forecourt - it is “The Catalane” by Manolo Valdés .
The plaque on the base says it is a tribute to the composer, Dëodat de Séverac (1892-1921)
The coat of arms of the town is above the entrance to the office.
I liked the letters cut into the wood lintel of the building SYNDICAT d'INITIATIV - the name formerly used in France for offices of tourism, usually abbreviated to S.I.

Great Saturday market
Favorite thing: The Saturday morning market is a great spectacle.
great atmoshere under the huge Plane trees.............lots of good local food
Sit in a cafe and watch the people go by.
Just make sure you put cotton wool in your ears to drown out the ghastly Pan pipes
from the resident Aztec type 4 peice band........who could easily ruin the visual feasts on hand.
Ceret is a lovely place dont miss it .
