Mont-ral (in Spanish, Montreal) is a municipality in the comarca of Alt Camp, Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain.

The Prades Mountains are located within this municipal term.

History[edit]

Mont-ral was part of the Montblanc Vegueria until 1716. Later it became part of the Tarragona Corregiment administrative division.[4]

This municipality had over 1,000 inhabitants during the second half of the 19th century, but has lost almost 80% of its population since then.[2]
