Located on the river Agly, this hilltop village, formerly called Triniach, is worth visiting to see the many ancient door lintels that bear the dates of the individual homes. Before the Treaty of the Pyrenees (1659) Latour de France was the first French village you would have come to after the Aragon border, hence its name.

The castle, judging from the fortifications, dates from the fourteenth century, the tower of which later became the church tower.

The village is also rich in sacred antiquities:


The Saint Martin Chapel ( 1200-1300 ad ) with the remains of a wall and a fortified door was the parish church of Our Lady of the Assumption and the foundations of an original, earlier church building called " The hospital yard” still remain. The Chapel therefore dates respectively from the 15th, 17th and 19th centuries.


Today, the villages main activity is winegrowing, having its own AOC " Latour de France ."


A picnic area with a barbecue and recreation area ( BMX , football and basket ball etc ... ) encourages you to come and relax on the banks of the river Agly . A 2-star campsite with mobile homes and bungalows is also ready to welcome you.
