“This place stretches anyone’s command of English superlatives; and the terribly hackneyed phrase of ‘I haven’t got the words’ obviously doesn’t work in a TA review! So, I will find words …. The Cirque du Gavarnie is the Most Amazing Place you Will EVER see. There you go – big claim; but true. Really, regardless of how you get there, your jaw will drop as you take in the spectacle of this geological giant. It is SO big, SO dramatic, SO elegant, SO (another hackneyed phrase) awe-inspiring – that you will wonder how you might capture the image to take away with you. Cameras and mobile phones simply don’t cut it – it is only your own internal ‘Memory camera’ of the brain that can do justice to this sight and this site. Really, go – if you have to join a coach-trip, go – If you are fit enough to do the long walk to it – go! And if you have to ride a donkey there (yes that is really an option) – go. However you go – you will still experience the magic and soul-enriching experience of this place. And there’s even a bar, traditional, stone-built, and placed (depending on your view) either so close to the main event to detract from the natural grandeur of the site – or, at a really handy location for essential refreshments after a very long hike … Even in high season, we still managed at one point to be the ONLY people visible in the entire Cirque de Gavarnie…. But if solitude is your thing - and it is mine - then you will also really like - indeed, may prefer - the nearby Cirque de Tromouse. But if you possibly, possibly, can, then get to see both of them. These are Europe’s star sights at their very best.”

“Incredible views across the city of Bordeaux and the Garonne river. You have to climb 231 steps to get to the top so I'd say that it's not ideal attraction for those with a fear of heights!”
