Lac de la Raho

Our green lung at the gates of Perpignan

The lakes of la Raho are situated on the municipalities of Villeneuve-de-la-Raho, Bages, Montescot et Pollestres. Created in the 70’s for hydraulic reasons, these spaces are managed according to the principles of sustainable development.

They offer at the gates of Perpignan 50 hectares of quality green space and 230 hectares of water space, with remarkable landscape views.
The many outdoor activities that the site offers make it one of the most visited places in the department.
In spring, the site enchants visitors with its many flowering meadows.
