Hautes-Pyrenees tourist informationwhere to go - what to see - what to do
Two-thirds of the Hautes-Pyrenees is covered in mountains with summits reaching altitudes of 3000 metres or more.
This region is not short of water with over 300 lakes and 2000km of rivers & streams which feed the surrounding departments. The Parc National des Pyrenees and the Neouvielle reserve was set up to protect the environment.
There are approximately 550 churches, 150 chapels and 10 abbeys which suggest a rich religious heritage - most date back to Renaissance times and are currently being restored.
Sport is a way of life here with the region producing some of France's most accomplished skiers, cyclists and rugby players.
