Pyrenees National Park

The Pyrenees National Park

Established in 1967, the Pyrenees National Park works for the harmonious development of our villages, with respect for the natural environment and the mountains but also for the lives of the people and the pastoral economy. It houses an  extremely rich, fragile and well-preserved flora and fauna .

The villages of Gavarnie and Gèdre are located in the heart of the Pyrenees National Park and the two municipalities are emblematic of the region.

From the Brèche de Roland, to the great glacial cirques and down to the pasture lands, this is one of the most spectacular landscapes that you will ever have the opportunity to see.
