Golden Blue / Central Pyrenees, France

August 09, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The Pyrenees Mountain range is a vast chain separating France from Spain. It runs from the Atlantic coast in the Bay of Biscay to the Gulf of Lion on the Mediterranean coast, for a distance of 430km (267mi).
The Pyrenees can be divided into three regions: the Pyrénées Atlantiques (Atlantic side) taking in the Basque country; the Pyrénées Centrales (central area) which has no roads leading to Spain except for that crossing the col of Puymorens; and the Pyrénées Orientales (Mediterranean side) where the range falls into the sea south of Perpignan. In total, the Pyrenees cover an area of 19,000km² (7,336mi²). The range includes 129 main and 83 secondary summits, all of them higher than 3,000m (9,843ft).
