Prats-Saint-Thomas is located west of Fontpédrouse.
The river Têt runs through the north of Prats-Saint-Thomas, from the west to the east.
The commune of Prats-Saint-Thomas was created in 1793 by uniting the hamlets of Prats-Balaguer and Saint-Thomas. Since 26 June 1822, it was linked with Fontpédrouse.
Part of the hamlets were destroyed in December 1932 because of heavy rains which caused several landslides.
