Do you live near a prat?

Well, best not to answer that one really if you don’t want to fall out with the neighbours, but you will probably have noticed that there are a lot of Prats around.

In fact, prat is the Catalan word for prairie or meadow. Prats de Mollo, for example, is so called after Mollo, a village over the border in Spain, whose land was where Prats de Mollo is now, hence the prairies of Mollo.
