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.
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.
