Périllos

Périllos is a former commune in Pyrénées-Orientales.

History[edit]

In the 14th century, the lord of Périllos was made a viscount by John I of Aragon as a reward for his continuous helping.[1]

Originally independent, since 19 November 1971, it is linked with Opoul, and hence known as Opoul-Périllos.[2] The village itself has since been abandoned.
