  • Nice ride in an environment marked by Vauban architecture, on a very special day: the festivities of the bear. Every February, held ancestral party that gets lost in the origin of times. Winter is ending and the first signs of spring are perceived. About hombres-oso wake up from your sleep, appetite, also sexual appetite. Areas of Prats de Mollo streets in search of prey. The tour starts in Fort Lagarde, where are prepared and start hunting. A party very peculiar, very genuine and as they say in French "bizarre". The bears will be well-greased a soot, that mark each of the dams. It is highly recommended to go with old clothes, above all women. The Castle has a curious access through a covered tunnel, together with a typical defensive structure of Vauban. The views over the village and the snowy peaks of Costabona are worth. Together with the persecutions of bears defensive structure creates situations diivertidas and curious. The festivities continue on the historical and medieval town of Prats, up to the main square. The shearers there capture the hombres-oso where to return them their human side. Very funny and entertaining, unique party and that will surprise you.

  • Absolutely brilliant fortress with views! The rise is however a very erschwerlich to another but also exciting because it goes up through a long passageway. Alternatively you can aussenherum with the stroller. Both are probably about equal in length. The historic centre of the town and the restaurants worth a visit are anyway. To recommend!

  • Fort of the architect Vauban. It is worth going up there by the tunnel leading out of the village if you're in good shape, as it makes a lot of ascent. The entrance costs 3 ' 5 €, but worth it even for the view.
