From a population of 500 inhabitants in 1830 to just 10 permanent residents, last recorded by Insee in 2011, the commune of Urbanya in the district of Prades is worth a visit.

Set amidst magnificent scenery in the massif du Madres, the tiny village nevertheless has a town hall with defibrillator, Wi Fi, a rather interesting little church, half ancient, half modern, and ‘le doigt du géant’, a tree in a private garden, carved into a finger pointing to heaven!
