Protected natural areas


Western Valleys Natural Park

The Western Valleys Natural Park is located at the nothwest end of the aragonese Pyrenees, bordering to the north with France and to the west with Navarre. Its relief has been moldeled by the accion of glaciers, which sculpted slender peaks while they dug cirques and U-shaped valleys, as well as depressions  that brought about todays ibon (mountain lakes). The valleys contain a great wealth in species of fauna, some of which are endemic species of the Pyrenees.


French Pyrenees National Park

The Pyrenees National Park stretches for 100 km from east to west, from the Aure Valley to the Aspe Valley. This is where you’ll find the major natural landmarks and features so typical of the Pyrenees.

It is home to some 6,000 izards (the Pyrenean name for the chamois and the Park’s symbol), masses of marmots and a host of birds of prey such as the bearded vulture, the golden eagle and the peregrine falcon. Here you will also find lynxes, genettes and the last brown bears of the Pyrenean line.
