Agos-Vidalos

Tourism, holidays & weekends guide in the Hautes-Pyrénées

Agos-Vidalos is a municipality taking place in the Hautes-Pyrénées department. Located in the district of Argelès-Gazost, this small village is in the Lavedan, between 400 and 1360 meters. Part of its territory is within the regional nature reserve of the massif of Pibeste-Aoulhet.

The creation of this village in the Pyrenees was encouraged during the construction of the castle Vidalos by Centulle III, Count of Bigorre, in the twelfth century. Some English time, the village has resumed his French nationality during the resumption of the province by Charles V. The village, in its current form, was born from the merger of Commons and Agos Vidalos in 1846.

Although modest, the village of Agos-Vidalos has still some fine monuments to discover during a walk in the old center of the lanes.
