Luz-Gavarnie Valley

Recommended
The Gavarnie valley is mainly known for its Cirques (Gavarnie, Troumouse, Estaubé) whose different overlapping layers of limestone are clearly visible in places. Many of the summits are over 3000m/9,800ft high. Here too the development of spa resorts opened the area up in the 19C when paved roads were built. The valley began attracting and inspiring a number of "Pyrenean fans", naturalists, artists and writers.
