Prads Haute Bléone
A lovely road lined with majestic mountain massifs and high cliffs containing folds from erosion, a joy for climbers - and geologists, even the very youngest !
Folds, whether Hercynian or not, grey or white rock strata, 300 million years of erosion have sculpted the rock into hallucinating shapes here !The small peaceful village of Prads is located at the very end of this cul de sac, with the cliff as a back drop, on the edge of a meadow filled with apple trees, it nestles at the foot of a mountain cirque.
Take the paved stairs to admire some beautiful stonework houses and hay
barns , a fountain or even the robust baptismal font, which is all that
