DETAILED INFORMATION

The Cirque de Gavarnie is located in the South-West of France, in the department of Hautes-Pyrenees Midi-Pyrenees, on the northern slope of the ridge line marking the border with Spain. The village of Gavarnie, the highest village of the department, housing less than 150 inhabitants, is located slightly downstream of the junction between the bottom of Gavarnie, where Gave the same name flows, and the Valley of Pouey Aspé, which flows the Gave of Tourette in the upper part of the valley of Gavarnie. Lourdes is located about fifty kilometers north as the crow flies. The circus is dug in the Pyrenees.
