  • Built around an ancient tower in medieval signals (referred to 1308), the Citadel has developed from the 17th century to adapt to the needs of the times: her Dungeon was initially intended to keep residents during the revolts peasant Angelets (1667-68 and 1670-74), then enlarged from 1677 directed by Vauban, was a barrier to the Spanish incursions. However, in 1793, during the war between the Spain and the revolutionary France, Fort Lagarde undergoes headquarters troops of General Ricardos, came through the pass of Ares. Fallen into the hands of the enemy, it took until the following year when the soldiers of General Dugommier in drove them to push back them beyond the Pyrenees. The fortress, which we think it housed a garrison of one hundred soldiers, includes thirty pieces: barracks, armoury, kitchen and Chapel, as well as a tunnel built in the 18th century which connects it to the city, leading today to tens of metres off the walls. The Tourist Office offers guided tours which is the best way to lose the interest of the site. Classified historical monument by Decree as of January 15, 1925.

  • Very beautiful fort Vauban who dominates the city of Prats de Molló and remained in very good condition. €3,5 entry € 2.5 with the pass. There is a small 30 minute visit with a guide given to the entry and a description of the parts of the fort. There is also now a small exhibition of photographs of Dali. If you do not have the guided tour in the afternoon which allows you to mount drive from the tourist office, a rise of 20 minutes waiting for you by the covered very cool even in summer or the path outside. The ascent is not easy with very young children.

  • Place to visit, with good shoes, make the galleries. Once at the top, do not forget to visit the fort, so your money... cash, 3€ 50. Wonderful view!

  • The fort Lagarde is especially, in my view, for the ballad and the view of the village of Prats-de-Mollo and the mountain. Small museum inside on the traditions of the village. Possibility to go or to come back through the underground (140 steps up from the village or down from the fort). Nice! Very correct entry cost.

  • An impressive fortress. The ascent is quite strenuous. But once at the first top a beautiful view awaits you. The visit to the facility costs 3.50 euros per person. You should make the descent through the tunnel to the place.
