This amazing mountain scenery, the highest limestone massif in western Europe, straddling the frontier between France and Spain, has been declared a World Heritage site by Unesco.

It contains two National Parks, one in France and one in Spain: the Ordesa National Park (Huesca), which has been expanded to include the Monte Perdido massif (3,352 metres) and several glaciers.

The whole area covers 30,639 hectares, and outstanding among its geological features are two canyons, the largest and deepest in Europe. They are on the southern slopes on the Spanish side. The remarkable landscape shows contrasting areas of karst, glaciers and valleys, the almost horizontal summits, and water filtering into the limestone mountainsides.

Monte Perdido is also a pasture zone, where an ancient way of rural life in the mountains of Europe can still be seen, and which has been preserved intact only in this part of the Pyrenees throughout the 20th century.
