The bedroom LA CATALANE « Sang i Or » is an allusion to the reality of our region -French Catalonia- and of course the very history of VILLEFRANCHE DE CONFLENT. Today a village of 230 souls, Villefranche was built by charter granted by Guillem Ramonen, Count of Cerdagne, in 1091.
The Count wished to make of Villefranche his new capital city.
The town then controlled access to the main lands of the Conflent and indeed became the capital of the Conflent and seat of a viguerie (medieval administrative court) in 1126. It thus remained until the XVIIIth century. The town was then besieged and taken by the French in 1654 and attached to France through the Pyrénées Treaty of 1659.
Another allusion related to the bed & breakfast of the OLD POST OFFICE , is that in 1974, Joan Miró, Catalonian painter, sculptor, engraver and ceramist, creates a re-interpretation of the postal bird logo of the French Postal Service that becomes the first artistic work specially created to be reproduced as a stamp of the « artistic series », in France and Barcelona…
