Prats de Mollo Nature Reserve

The Prats de Mollo nature reserve starts at 1490m and is 2507m at its peak. The richness of its flora, fauna and birdlife formed the basis of an article covering months by month changes written by one of the reserve’s wardens. The translation of that article can be viewed through the calendar section on this site.


The reserve, its lands and species, has been the subject of numerous doctoral theses and of many ongoing studies over the last few decades. If you wish to undertake any scientific investigation then the wardens of the reserve would be happy to hear from you.
