Barèges-Gavarnie sheep - Tourism in the Hautes-Pyrénées

Bred in the canton of Luz-Saint-Sauveur on the high slopes of the Pyrenees mountains, Barèges-Gavarnie sheep were awarded the AOC quality label in 2003. This Barégeoise breed of sheep is renowned for its high-quality, finely-marbled and flavoursome meat.

Worth visiting: the Chop Festival (Fête des Côtelettes), which takes place every late September in Luz-Saint-Sauveur.
