We thought it would be a snowless walk but to our delight there was still lots of it. We went to the lake gaume, an ehour's walk. Then we hiked back the other way to the Cable cars- which were closed as advertised at the car park- to hike back over the ski slopes to the car park. Amazing views... More

Fantastic experience, visited with our 2 yr old, once you get past the somewhat touristic earlier parts you enter a wild open valley of rivers, snow and mountains, where you really feel like you could see mammoths roaming past any minute..

Very nice place to do mountain activities (Nordic skiing, snow walks, ...) or just enjoy the landscape. Easy access with the bus from Cauterets. Be aware in winter with iced paths.

Very beautiful natural paradise. Perfect for cross country skiing or walking. If there is snow it is a great location to take children to make snowmen. There is a bar there serving food and drinks and deck chairs to sit out in the warm sun on a winters day, topping up your vitamin D!

Visited this attraction of nature during a journey through France to Spain, just wish we had planned for a lot longer to really appreciate the site. The road to the area is interesting and gives a sense of wonderment as to what you are going to find. When you do arrive you are presented with a massive car park, a... More

What a place !! I stayed with a friend and her son and whilst there it was suggested we visit Pont d'Espagne. I am so glad we went. I was in awe. Apparently it is covered in snow during the winter but it must have been eighty degrees in the shade when we were there. Sadly I am not great... More

A little disappointed with the waterfall although it is set in a lovely green area but compared to others we have seen i.e. Iceland this doesn't rate in our Top 10 but worth the trip as you can then go to Lac Gaube which was well the effort

The 'Pont d'Espagne' - Bridge of Spain / Spanish Bridge is situated in the Perinee, close to Cauterets. This beautiful old sturdy stone bridge is in the Pyrenee mountains, higher up from Cauterets. The bridge spans the Marcadau river where the Gaube river joins. This is a lovely part of the Pyrenees with beautiful forest in the Pyrenees National Park.... More
