About Chateau de Pena:

You will find the village of Cases de Pène in Roussillon, about ten miles West of Perpignan on the D117 road. The word “Pena” means “rock” in Catalan and referred in the Middle Ages to the castle perched on a rocky mountain spur which dominates the valley of the River Agly. Here vines rub shoulders with olive trees, almond trees and maquis in a typical Mediterranean landscape.
