I am still in Cerbere. Tomorrow I will take the train to Port Boa. They say, tunnels and railway station'' beyond'' are unique in Europe. The town is where I shall spend the night, or nautical center. Divers love it. Restaurants compete in offering excellent wines and cuisine with African admixture. Marina is very comfortable furnishings. There is also a hotel, modern, with plenty of stars, and sea.
In the morning we visit dedicated environment Cerbere. Small walk rented bikes. Mainly along the coast. We meet many cyclists. In all directions. Here is to seem popular. Alternatively, in terms of foreigners in this way include the tourism. Let us go to the north and about 1 1/2 miles north of Cerbere on the coast road to Banjul’s, our acquaintance directed to the board that says "Le bout du monde". It is an attractive restaurant on the coast. After refreshments, we return to the city. Afternoon waiting for our Le Belvedere du Rayon Vert. Object that was interesting to us from coming to this place because of its very unusual shape. We stand in front of him. Impressed and curious.
It looks like a powerful, slightly old-fashioned, the ship, which is opposite the bow pointed frontal wave, while the hips to lean on one side of the main city artery, while his other thigh touches the famous railway corridor. This building was built back 1930th according to the plans of Architects of Perpignan, León Baille. However, today, the admirer of Walter Benjamin, better known by multimedia installations Israeli artist Dani Caravan -'' Blue'' beam, laser technology, which is an interactive relationship with fellow Karavanovim memorial complex in Port Boa. In an ingeniously artistic – electronic the synthesis of these two features, then meshed with the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, Eiffel tower, and incorporated into the art and music of Marcel Decamps John Keyđ.
It has the overall appearance of a ship. It has its own cinema, and a tennis court on the roof. In 2002, the building was added to the supplementary list of historic monuments. Part of the building has been brought back into use as apartments, with some original features. The building is open to visitors, which is quite unusual, most afternoons.
At the end of the trip, we wonder what it would be logical to know at the beginning. Where did this name?
When it comes to the really unusual name of this city, the local intellectuals are unique to the derivation of the name has certainly nothing to do with the dog Cerberus, the Guardian of Hell in Greek mythology, even if Cape Cerbere could appear as a guard post at the entry to Spain. However, given the antiquity of the name, it must be assumed to be a pre-Latin name, and to come from the pre-Indo-European root followed by the Iberia-Basque. The name of Cerbere described, then, a rocky place, which perfectly describes this location.
At the railway station we wait Cerbere local train that goes to Port Bou, because high-speed train to Barcelona, in this time, only this part of the region thundering Pyrenees-Orientale’s. Once again, we on this side. On a trip to Port-Vendres.

Staying in Cebere for 4 days just before the summer season means that there isn't a great deal to choose from when eating out

La Dorade consists of a restaurant a bar a a pizza shop all along side each other and the only competition is a large seafood eatery opposite which opens occasionally and another place up the hill

Luckily La Dorade has very good food and friendly staff. Over the 4 days we had many lunches and dinners there and all were delicious and not too expensive.

When everything else is shut in the middle of the fat there is at least one of La Dorades outlets open so you can always getba feed and a drink.

Our friends and we give it full marks.
