Cerbère is a town of 1,400 people (2017) in Pyrénées-Orientales in France. Cerbère is an important centre for tourism, often linked with undersea diving. For rail travellers on the regional route between France and Spain, Cerbère is important because almost all trains end or start here or in the neighbouring Spanish border station Portbou.
- 1 Perpignan Airport (PGF IATA). The nearest commercial airport.
- 2 Girona Airport ( GRO IATA). A little further away, but with more connections.
Cerbere train station was once of great importance in rail traffic as a border station to Spain, as the continental standard gauge ends here. Long-distance traffic is now managed differently, but regional trains still run.
