Prats-de-Mollo The Essential

Perched among the southern foothills of the Canigou massif, this town combines the dual appeal of being a fortified settlement by Vauban, and a Catalan mountain community. In frontier territory traditionally associated with rebellion, the little town sees its streets come alive in February when the annual Fête de l'Ours (Bear Festival) takes place. Whatever the season, this is the ideal place to come for fresh air all year round and an unspoilt environment.
