Description L'Albère is a commune in the Pyrénées-Orientales department in southern France.ToponymyThe name of L'Albère is clearly issued from the Albera Massif in which it is located. Although always plural in French (Albères) concerning the mountain range, the name remains singular through the ages (L'Albère) for the commune. On the contrary, in Catalan, the name has always been singular for both the mountain (Serra de l'Albera) and the place (L'Albera).HistoryEarly settlements of population grew near the two primitive churches : Saint Martin, already named in 844 and Saint John, known since 1089 . The hamlets of Saint Martin and Saint John both still exist nowadays, each with its church.Population and societyDemographyEducationThere is no school in L'Albère.
