Hyacinthe Rigaud Museum

The city is proud of Perpignan-born Hyacinthe Rigaud, the 17th century artist and favourite of Louis XIV who worked in this gracious old mansion, painting portraits of courtiers, and aristocrats and local notables. It’s now the city’s fine arts museum, displaying a fine collection of paintings by Pablo Picasso, Raoul


Dufy and Jean Cocteau, whose works form the core of a modern art collection which also features drawings and paintings by a number of other 20th century artists. If you love modern art, this little museum is a real discovery – it deserves to be much better known.
