The next time we go to something good I will try to remember to drop you a line. All feedback is very much appreciated Noel The more we hear about people's experiences, will hopefully encourage others to see what the region has to offer. Me & my partner love the area & yes we do like our beach time...

Re: Parking at Port Bou

I am going to travel from near Vernet les Bains to Barcelona next month and I thought it would be easier to take the train from Port Bou. Does anybody know what the parking is like? I have looked at a few sites on google but they are remarkably silent on the subject. My fleeting memories, are that ...
