DETAILS:

The French city of Perpignan is home to the highest concentration of Catalan gypsies in Northern Catalonia. Approximately one thousand sedentary gypsies live in Cité Bellús suburb, located in the outskirts of Perpignan (France) distributed among 166 social residences and roughly fifty caravans. The gypsies of la Cité are a patriarchal and closed community living outside the French law, under the gypsy principles of community and tradition. Considered as a hostile environment by the French government, they live with scarce resources and a high level of illiteracy caused by the lack of schooling as a result of their long nomadic tradition and early marriage. Most gypsies make a living through commerce, scavenging and government assistance, while children roam the streets until the small hours of the morning.
