When earth was created, however you believe it came about, the Pyrenees is one place that some serious thought, engineering and style came together to create a masterpiece. These manificant mountain ranges form a border between France and Spain located in Southwest Europe.
The highest peak in the Pyrenees is Aneto, which sits at 3,404m asl and the highest paved pass is Port d'Envalira at 2,408 m (located in Andorra)
The Pyrenees span some 491 km from the Bay iof Biscay (Cap Higuer to be precise) to the Mediterranean Sea (Cap de Creus).
Most people come back to the Pyrenees a few times in their cycling life, visiting different zones at each time in order to experience as many passes as possible or maybe you just want to traverse the entire range over 14 days and 1300km!!
Translations - Spanish: Pirineos, French: Pyrénées, Aragonese: Pirineus, Catalan: Pirineus , Occitan: Pirenèus, Basque: Pirinioak
