The Pyrenees Sights

As the crow flies, the Pyrenees stretch 435 km (270 miles) along Spain's border with France, though the sinuous borderline exceeds 600 km (370 miles). A drive across the N260 trans-Pyrenean axis connecting the destinations in this region would exceed 800 km (495 miles). The three groupings across the cordillera are the Catalan Pyrenees, from the Mediterranean to the Noguera Ribagorçana River south

of Vielha; the central Pyrenees of Aragón, extending west to the Roncal Valley; and the Basque Pyrenees, falling gradually westward through the Basque Country to the Bay of Biscay and the Atlantic Ocean. The highest peaks are in Aragón–Aneto, in the Maladeta massif; Posets; and Monte Perdido, all of which are about 11,000 feet above sea level. Pica d'Estats (10,372 feet) is Catalonia's highest peak, and Pic d'Orhi (6,656 feet) is the highest in the Basque Pyrenees.
