The Romanesque church of Sant Miquel de Prats in the hamlet of Prats is a clear example of the Andorran rural Romanesque.

Built roughly and in humble materials, it maintains the essence of the tradition of our valleys: rectangular nave with solid walls (1 metre thick), a semi-circular apse on the eastern side. Two elements stand out, the rough stone pointed arch on the entrance and the double gabled bell tower with a half point arch. The complex was restored in the early 1980s to correct and level the uneven walls, but despite the restoration we can clearly make out the primitive structure.
