Prades, our starting point, is nationally known for its strategic location between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean, at the foot of the impressive Mt Canigou. Its mild Mediterranean climate with over 300 days of sunshine, the choice of cultural and sporting opportunities and the impressive natural diversity of the Pyrenees make it the ideal starting point for extensive motorcycle tours. The flora and fauna of the whole of Europe are combined here in a very small area. Rocky coasts or sandy beaches, mountain streams or reservoirs, rugged gorges or fertile plains, palm and lemon trees or ferns and firs. At almost every corner you will find remnants of the eventful past of this region. There are plenty of castles, palaces and monasteries to marvel at. Countless myths, fairy tales, ancient stories and traditions entwine around the holy mountain of the Catalans, the Canigou, the wild gorges of the Corbières or the still impressive testimonies of the mysterious Cathars.
