Travel over Col du Puymorens and lunch.

Jump to last reply

We will be driving from the Barcelona airport to Mirepoix, France on May 15th. Our plan is to drive over Col du Puymorens, the tunnel will be closed I think. I know snow is possible that time of year but I have plenty of experience driving on snowy mountain roads. I have the web-cam over the col book-marked and will check it before leaving BCN. Unless chains are required that will be our route.

Our flight lands at 08:45 so we should be in our rental car and beginning our journey by 10:00. Does anyone have a suggestion for a place to stop near noon? It will be time for lunch and a short walk to stretch by then. I was thinking Puigcerda would be good. I just looked at Stu Dudley’s itinerary for the Languedoc and he thought that Puigcerda was a waste of time. I wonder if it will service our needs for decent food and a few things to look at? Does anyone have a suggestion for a better place to stop about 1 1/2 to 2 hours from BCN?

Thank you for any help.
