French Pyrenees Mountains : A lovely trip along the Cirque de Gavarnie. – 20 photos.

This place is made for walking. Some day…8-) I love this region. I had the great joy of X-ing the pyrenees in 2009 from SJPP.

At an altitude of 1,600 meters this natural “cirque” is an amphitheater-like valley head.

It is around fifty kilometers from the town of Lourdes., the holy city on the foothill of the Pyrenees

Nestled in the emblematic landscape of the High Pyrenees, the cirque de Gavarnie is a favorite among walkers, and was a hotspot for the great figures of romanticism, such as Victor Hugo.

The “Colosseum of nature”, as Victor Hugo called the Cirque, has a “wall” which towers at 3248m and this magical place also boasts the largest waterfall in Europe.
