Prades
The Essential
Prades is wedged between the foothills of Mount Canigou and the alluvial basin of the Têt, amidst flourishing orchards. Adorned with pink marble from the Conflent, the centre sports a maze of streets revealing decorative porches, fountains and washhouses. The church features a splendid altarpiece (1696-1699) by Catalan sculptor Josep Sunyer. A starting point for numerous hikes, every summer, music lovers flock here to the Pablo Casals Festival.
