The Conflent is proud of its exceptional natural asset, the Mount Canigou – sacred mountain of the Catalans – that is considered a ‘Grand Site De France’ and a ‘Natura 2000’ site. It soars to an altitude of 2,784 m (over 9,100 feet). The extraordinary Grand Canalettes Grottos also illustrate what nature can create. The rich historical heritage is crying out to be visited – from Prades to Villefranche de Conflent, via Codalet and Casteil.

Prades, originally mentioned in writings as early as 843, was at the heart of the Franco-Spanish conflict and is still considered to be the centre point of the Conflent. Named the ‘Viguerie’ (a mediaeval administrative court) of the Conflent in 1773, it developed around both agriculture and industry, especially after the arrival of the railway in 1877. The town’s key monument is undoubtedly the 17th century church of Saint Peter with its 14 chapels, built on the ruins of a former church with only the 12th century Lombard-style bell-tower remaining. Inside the church is the largest Baroque reredos in France. Blessed with a pleasant climate, a naturally green surrounding landscape and a view of the Canigou Mountain, many artists have come here since the 19th century. One was Gustave Violet; another Pablo Casals, who left Spain during the Retirada (Spanish exodus) and took refuge in Prades. Here he found artistic inspiration and in 1950 created the Prades International Music Festival, still bearing his name today.

►  LOOK AT the castle that used to belong to the Pams family and is now the Town Hall. Look too at the historical details in the centre of town.
►  DISCOVER the garnet, a jewel that comes from an ancestral tradition – it has become one of the icons of Catalonia.

Codalet

Codalet

The Saint Michel Cuxa Abbey is the oldest Pre-Romanesque church in France still standing today. Building began in 956 and it is now a tourist haven. It is even busier during the Romanesque Days and especially during the Pablo Casals Festival.

►  VISIT the village church dedicated to Saint Félix and mentioned in writing as early as 865

Le Fort Liberia L'Église Saint-Jacques La Grotte des Grandes Canalettes

Towards the end of the 11th century, the Count of Cerdagne started constructing and fortifying the village in this narrow part of the Têt Valley in order to control access to his lands in the Conflent. Today this medieval village is classified as one of the ‘Most beautiful villages in France’, its charm stemming from the picturesque narrow streets full of artisanal shops. Visit the Cova Bastera grotto as well as the ramparts and the overhanging Fort Liberia built under Vauban’s supervision in the 17th century and now a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2008.

►  LOOK AT the 12th century Saint Jacques church, modified by Vauban.

L'Église romane Saint-Saturnin La station thermale Le Musée d'Histoire Naturelle

Built around its castle and the 12th century Romanesque church dedicated to Saint Saturnin, the village was controlled by the Casteil Abbey until the 18th century. The following century witnessed the growth in the popularity of cures and the development of the spa resort. Frequent visits by celebrities led to the construction of attractive houses providing Vernet with a degree of elegant residential architecture.

►  VISIT the Natural History Museum and the ‘Arboretum Village’.

Casteil

Castell

The powerful Benedictine abbey Saint Martin du Canigou, has dominated the Conflent for over 1,000 years. It is occupied by a community but welcomes pilgrims and those who come to meditate. The building, dating from the start of the Romanesque period, is remarkably well preserved – not-to-be missed heritage masterpiece.

►  ALSO VISIT: The animal park.

À découvrir... La Vallée de la Rotja

An ideal spot for nature lovers, the Rotja Valley covers the four villages of Fuilla, Mantet, Py and Sahorre. It is a popular hiking area through herds and flocks of livestock during their transhumance, moving from one grazing ground to another. Hikers are also able to explore a number of Romanesque religious buildings, as well as the not-to-be-missed Py-Mantet reserve for the flora and fauna of the Pyrenees.
