Set out to discover Eus : 3km from Prades, is nestled on the mountainside.

A pedestrianised village, it is pleasant to walk through its steep streets and to meet the artisans, artists and local producers. Attractions are the church of St Vincent at the top, the Romanesque chapel at the bottom. Guided tours available.

Visit the city of Villefranche-de-Conflent : 6km from Prades, is a medieval town fortified by Vauban at the end of the seventeenth century and classified as a World Heritage site by UNESCO. It is one of the 50 most visited sites in France thanks to a unique architectural heritage : the ramparts, the St Jacques Romanesque church and its rich furnishings, and the narrow streets full of craft shops. Villefranche is protected from above by Fort Liberia, the two connected by a tunnel of 775 steps. Just across from Villefranche can be found 3 extensive sets of caves : the Small and Large Canalettes caves and the Préhisto-cave. Guided tours available
